International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology 2007 (ICFPT'07) - Japan
ICFPT is a fast growing conference on field-programmable technologies, including complex programmable logic devices and systems containing such components. The development of, and the applications of, field-programmable technology have become an important topic of research for universities, government, and industry worldwide. Field-programmable devices combine the flexibility of software with the performance of
hardware. Their regular structure facilitates rapid improvement in density, capability and speed. Field-programmable systems have a wide variety of applications, such as accelerating computations in
molecular biology and medical imaging, low-power control and data processing for palm-size computers, and emulating novel electronic products before manufacture; even advanced microprocessors from Intel and ARM have benefited from field-programmable hardware emulators.
