Today's applications in the domains of multimedia, signal processing, etc. consist of a number of interacting components. If the way of interaction is determined at run time, we say that an application is non-static. In general, complex real-world applications are non-static. In this paper, we summarize a method for modeling and FPGA implementation of applications that have a specific type of non-static behavior. This method is based on program decomposition resulting in the generation of truly parameterized Kahn process networks and their mapping onto FPGAs. We automated the method by integrating it in our tools Compaan/Laura. The efficiency of our method is demonstrated by an implementation of a real-world application taken from the automotive domain.
