Software defined radio platform developed so far are designed for particular application. Current reconfigurable computing technology allows designers to implement complete embedded computing systems on a single FPGA. This paper concentrates on designing a reconfigurable platform which consists of reconfigurable coprocessors that can be used in various applications. The architecture that the authors have developed for the generic reconfigurable coprocessor is well suited for multiple application domains. It ties in to the sequential RISC processor based C programming framework where in the coprocessor performs specific functions, replacing a C function call.
