FELIX is a new design space exploration tool and graphical integrated development environment (IDE) for the programming of coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures. Its main and novel advantage is the use of rewriting rules and logical strategies for the automated generation of alternative functionally equivalent implementations from a single mathematical specification. The user selection of the rewriting logic strategies to be applied determines the resulting implementations, making it possible to quickly generate, simulate and evaluate alternative implementations that are logically equivalent. The FELIX system includes an interface to the KressArray Xplorer for hardware design-space exploration. The current version of the tool is targeted for the pact extreme processing platform (XPP), with support for additional architectures planned in future versions.
