Our life has become useful by electrical products, but not all elderly people and disabled people can get contribution by it. Wearable supporting systems are needed to for such people to get usefulness anywhere. Since supporting systems vary according to what support to and the characteristics of target person, it must satisfy the high-mix low-volume nature of such products. Also, in a low-end embedded product with wearable nature, realizing the signal processing as hardware is required in terms of performance and power consumption. The Dynamic partial reconfiguration (DPR) of hardware is one of the candidates to tackle such problem. This paper proposes a generic system-on-chip (SoC) platform, dynamic partial reconfiguration platform (DyREP), which uses the DPR nature. Through the case study that binarizes an image and uses a prototype system of DyREP with an FPGA, we show some results.
