Evaluating FPGA Virtex-II Board Using Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration
The Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) offer effective suppleness and performance because of reconfigurable hardware but consume more power in contrast to the Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). At run-time reconfiguration of hardware in FPGAs can not only be very economical but can be real alternative for ASICs. The designers are reluctant to use Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration (DPR) in FPGA due to lack of adequate tools provided by the vendors. DPR has been in academic use for more over a decade.
