Adaptive Processor: A Dynamically Reconfiguration Technology for Stream Processing
In order to improve the performance of reconfigurable computing, the number of reconfigurable units is increased with advance of semiconductor technology. The array of reconfigurable units can be configured to application-specific pipelined processing datapath. Then configuration overhead will be critical overhead of total execution time for dynamic reconfiguration based system. In this paper, models of efficient configuration methodology and application-specific pipelined stream processing are proposed. Adaptive processor architecture is also proposed, and discussed in summary.
