Invasive computing is a novel paradigm for exploitation of run-time parallelism of future MPSoC architectures through resource-aware programming and dynamic reconfiguration of the underlying architectures. Based on the state and availability of resources, an invasive algorithm organizes its computation itself. This paper presents a general methodology for mapping invasive algorithms to FPGA-based dynamically reconfigurable architectures. A detailed description of a general invasive architecture on a reconfigurable platform is given. For 1D linear processor architectures, the applicability of this concept is tested and results show substantial flexibility gains with only marginal additional hardware cost.
