Voltage-mode Quaternary FPGAs: An Evaluation of Interconnections
This work presents a study about FPGA interconnections and evaluates
their effects on voltage-mode binary and quaternary FPGA structures.
FPGAs are widely used due to the fast time-to-market and reduced
non-recurring engineering costs in comparison to ASIC designs.
Interconnections play a crucial role in modern FPGAs, because they
dominate delay, power and area. The use of multiple-valued logic allows
the reduction of the number of signals in the circuit, hence providing a
mean to effectively curtail the impact of interconnections. The most
important characteristic of the results are the reduced fanout, fewer
number of wires and the smaller wire length presented by the quaternary
devices. We use a set of arithmetic circuits to compare binary and
quaternary implementations. This work presents the first step on
developing quaternary circuits by mapping any binary random logic onto

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
