Modern digital systems demand increasing electronic resources, so the multiprocessor platforms are a suitable solution for them. This approach provides better results in terms of area, speed, and power consumption compared to traditional uni-processor digital systems. Reconfigurable multiprocessor systems are a particular type of embedded system, implemented using reconfigurable hardware. This paper presents a review of this emerging research area. A number of state-of-the-art systems published in this field are presented and classified. Design methods and challenges are also discussed.
