Reconfigurable hardware from programmable logic devices
Reconfigurable hardware is an emerging technology that utilises SRAM based field programmable logic devices to implement functions in hardware to accelerate processing functions. Using the reconfigurable aspect of the programmable logic device this hardware function can then be changed allowing alternative functions to be implemented. This article will describe a hardware platform — the Altera Re configurable Interconnect Peripheral Processor (RIPP 10) that is now available to support research in this area.
