This paper introduces a CAD environment for design-space exploration of coarse grain reconfigurable KressArray architectures and similar platforms, To find an optimal solution to a given application domain this KressArray Xplorer supports experimenting with different architectures. An estimator analyses the input and suggests an architecture onto which then the application is mapped using an heuristic algorithm. A graphic editor supports user interaction. The system generates performance analysis data, which is used by an automatic tool to refine the result iteratively.
