Today's reconfigurable hardware devices have huge densities and are partially reconfigurable, allowing for the configuration and execution of hardware tasks in a true multitasking manner. This makes reconfigurable platforms an ideal target for many modern embedded systems that combine high computation demands with dynamic task sets. Such an operating system provides a minimal programming model and a runtime system. The runtime system performs online task and resource management. Thus the proposed paper deals with the concept of porting and customizing uClinux (an Operating system)on to the FPGA in the virtex II pro board which would create a new platform aiming to reduce power consumption and device price by using a base system builder which is reconfigurable as per the user logic.
