FPGAs in 2032: Challenges and Opportunities in the next 20 years

FPGA2012 Pre-Conference Workshop

February 22, 2012, Monetery, CA

Chairs: Vaughn Betz (University of Toronto) and Lesley Shannon (Simon Fraser University)

Abstract: This year marks the 20th anniversary of the FPGA Symposium, so itis fitting that this workshop will look forward to the changes that the next 20 years are likely to bring to programmable systems. A panel of visionaries from industry and academia will present their thoughts on major research areas, challenges and opportunities that will emerge over the coming two decades. Questions abound, from what the software flow in 2032 will be, to what architectures will suit chips with 100 billion transistors, and what the fabrication technology will be.
