ABSTRACT This paper introduces a new field-programmable architecture that
is targeted at compute-intensive applications. These applications are
important because of their use in the expanding multi-media markets in
signal and data processing. We explain the design methodology, layout
and implementation of the new architecture. A synthesis method has also
been developed with which we have mapped several circuits to the new
architecture. In this paper, we show that the invented architecture is
more area-efficient than traditional FPGAs by a factor of more than 2.5
