    Reconfigurability can be thought of as software-defined functionality, where flexibility is controlled predominately through the specification of bit patterns. Reconfigurable systems can be as simple as a single switch, or as abstract and powerful as programmable matter. This paper considers the generalization of reconfigurable systems as an important evolving discipline, bolstered by real-world a... View full abstract»

    Since their introduction, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have grown in capacity by more than a factor of 10 $thinspace$000 and in performance by a factor of 100. Cost and energy per operation have both decreased by more than a factor of 1000. These advances have been fueled by process technology scaling, but the FPGA story is much more complex than simple technology scaling. Quantitative e... View full abstract»

    Reconfigurable architectures can bring unique capabilities to computational tasks. They offer the performance and energy efficiency of hardware with the flexibility of software. In some domains, they are the only way to achieve the required, real-time performance without fabricating custom integrated circuits. Their functionality can be upgraded and repaired during their operational lifecycle and ... View full abstract»

    Reconfigurable architectures are a distinct point in the larger design space that includes programmable processors and nonprogrammable fixed-function devices. In this paper, we identify the major parameters that distinguish architectures in this design space and draw connections between these parameters and physical requirements (e.g., energy, delay, and area) and application characteristics (e.g....

    Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have been shown to provide high computational density and efficiency for many computing applications by allowing circuits to be customized to any application of interest. FPGAs also support programmability by allowing the circuit to be changed at a later time through reconfiguration. There is great interest in exploiting these benefits in space and other radi...

    In the past decade or so we have witnessed a steadily increasing interest in FPGAs as hardware accelerators: they provide an excellent mid-point between the reprogrammability of software devices (CPUs, DSPs, and GPUs) and the performance and low energy consumption of ASICs. However, the programmability of FPGA-based accelerators remains one of the biggest obstacles to their wider adoption. Develop... View full abstract»

    With advances in telecommunications, an increasing number of services rely on high data rate spectrum access. These critical services include banking, telemedicine, and exchange of technical information. As a result, spectrum resources are in ever-greater demand and the radio spectrum has become overly crowded. For efficient usage of spectrum, smart or cognitive radios are sought after. However, c...
