Elias Vansteenkiste

PhD researcher
Making FPGA CAD tools more scalable, mainly the backend of the tool flow, pack, place and route. Research on new architectural features for programmable devices and developing a new tool flow for the dynamic reconfiguration of FPGAs, that will allow fine-grain run-time reconfiguration of the interconnect network and the lookup tables.
