Future chip technologies will change the way, the authors deal with hardware design. Logic resources will be available in vast amount and engineering specialized designs for particular applications will no longer be the general approach as the non recurring expenses will grow tremendously. Thus, they believe that online synthesis that takes place during the execution of an application is one way to overcome these problems. In this paper, they show that even a relative simplistic synthesis approach can have a strong impact on the performance of compute intensive applications.
