This paper describes the design and implementation of a reconfigurable synchronized dataflow processor (RSDP). The RSDP can configure its hardware to directly represent dataflow graphs (DFGs) of applications. Data are processed while they flow along application-specific datapaths in the RSDP. We have designed three DFGs for benchmarking and evaluated their performance on an RSDP board. The results show that the RSDP running at relatively lower frequency can achieve a competitive performance with a general-purpose processor.
