Processors that deploy fine-grained reconfigurable fabrics to implement application-specific accelerators on-demand obtained significant attention within the last decade. They trade-off the flexibility of general-purpose processors with the performance of application-specific circuits without tailoring the processor towards a specific application domain like Application Specific Instruction set Processors (ASIPs). Vast amounts of reconfigurable processors have been proposed, differing in multifarious architectural decisions. However, it has always been an open question, which of the proposed concepts is more efficient in certain application and/or parameter scenarios.
