This book contains papers first presented at the SecondInternational Workshop on Field-Programmable Logic andApplications (FPL '92), held in Vienna, Austria, inAugust-September 1992.The growing importance of field-programmable devices,especially of field-programmable gate arrays, isdemonstrated by the increased number of papers submitted in1992. Of the 70 papers submitted, 23 were selected for thisbook. The first three papers were invited and discussstrategic issues and give surveys. Three papers deal withnew FPGA architectures and five papers introduce methods andtools. The last twelve papers report applications focusingon rapid prototyping or new FPGA-based computerarchitectures.The invited papersare: "Overview of complex array-basedPLDs" by G. Biehl; "Technologies and utilization of fieldprogrammable gate arrays" by J. Isoaho, A. Nummela, andH.Tenhunen; and "Some considerations on field-programmablegate arrays and their impact on system design" by A.Sangiovanni-Vincentelli.
