The inherent reconfigurability of FPGAs enables the authors to optimize an FPGA implementation in different time intervals by generating new optimized FPGA configurations and reconfiguring the FPGA at the interval boundaries. With conventional methods, generating a configuration at run-time requires an unacceptable amount of resources. In this paper, they describe a tool flow that can automatically map a large set of applications to a self-reconfiguring platform, without an excessive need for resources at run-time. The self-reconfiguring platform is implemented on a Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA and uses the FPGA's PowerPC as configuration manager.
