One of the most difficult aspects of experimental reconfigurable architecture or computer-aided design (CAD) tool research is obtaining sufficiently large benchmark circuits. One approach to obtaining such circuits is to generate them stochastically. Current circuit generators construct combinational and sequential logic circuits. Many of today's devices, however, are being used to implement entire systems, and often these systems contain on-chip storage. This paper describes a circuit generator that constructs circuits containing significant amounts of memory. To ensure the circuits are realistic, we have performed a detailed structural analysis of such circuits; this analysis is also described in this paper
