The inherently sequential nature of random discrete event-driven simulation has made parallel and distributed processing difficult. This paper presents a method of applying Reconfigurable Logic to gain some parallelism in event generation. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are used to create a flexible and fast environment in which events may be generated according to various statistical models. The method presented accelerates both event generation and the elimination of some blocked events from the Event Queue.
