In this paper, the authors propose a new heuristic for runtime task mapping of application(s) onto reconfigurable architectures. The heuristic is based on hardware configuration reuse, which tries to avoid the reconfiguration overhead of few selected tasks, by reusing the hardware configurations already available in the reconfigurable hardware. They evaluate their heuristic by performing a mapping of an extended Motion-JPEG application onto a reconfigurable architecture. A large variety of experiments have been conducted on the proposed algorithm for the same reconfigurable architecture model with different FPGA sizes.
