Eeeek -- I'm not sure -- let me ask the guys and gals at Xilinx to clarify to make sure I'm saying this the right way...

@Max, is this sentence correct: "In addition to having 1,954,560 logic cells, the Virtex-7 2000T device includes configurable logic blocks totaling 305,400 CLB slices ...."? The logic cell concept is a unit of abstraction consisting of 1 4-input LUT + 1 Flip-Flop, which makes it easier to compare the logic density of different FPGA families. The CLBs and slices are however real physical units on the FPGA which can be converted into equivalent Logic Cell count. In Viretx-7, 1 Slice ~ 6.4 Logic Cells.

Good news. Good information. What is logic between comparison of gates and slices?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
