This live demonstration presents an Internet Booster (IB) which is a novel WEB application platform accelerated by virtual hardware circuits. Akey-idea of IB is obtaining relevant WEB applications virtual hardware circuit through the Internet. The downloaded virtual hardware circuit is dynamically reconfigured into an FPGA and cooperates with software and network to accelerate WEB application. In order to realize the concept of IB, we develop a hwModule VC FPGA Cardbus board and a networked hw/sw complex system to access virtual hardware circiuts via the Internet. Furthermore, we also develop a virtual hardware video codec and a TCP/IP hardware stack to construct a demonstration system. In the live demonstration, we show a WEB streaming application accelerated by IB on the local area network environment. The demonstration system achieves full-color VGA size (24 bits RGB, 640 × 480 pixels) video streaming with around 20 frames per second.
