The paper describes a high level programming model for reconfigurable mesh architectures. We analyze the engineering and technological issues of the implementation of reconfigurable mesh architectures and define an abstract architecture, called polymorphic processor array. We define both a computation model and a programming model for polymorphic processor arrays and design a parallel programming language called Polymorphic Parallel C based on this programming model, for which we have implemented a compiler and a simulator. We have used such tools to validate a number of PPA algorithms and to estimate the performance of the corresponding programs
