Dynamic reconfiguration of a PMMLA for high-throughput applications
High throughput and dynamic reconfigurability are required in many tasks, especially real-time applications. A logical structure of parallel computing system for such applications is a pipeline of multiprocessor modules in form of a linear array (PMMLA). This paper proposes a scheme to dynamically reconfigure the system by varying the number of processors in each stage of the PMMLA to maintain load balancing among stages.
