Recently, it has been shown that unused on-chip memories can be valuable when they are used to implement logic. This paper explores how different memory architecture parameters affect its ability to implement logic in dual-mode FPGA embedded system blocks. It is shown that the optimum memory architecture has a depth of 32 or 64 words, and that each word should contain 16 bits.
