A Java development and runtime environment for reconfigurable computing
Fast runtime reconfigurable hardware enables system designers to swap hardware into and out of an FPGA much as-the pages of virtual memory are swapped into and out of virtual memory. Java provides a powerful object-oriented language with constructs to support multiple threads. In this paper, we discuss a method for developing reconfigurable hardware object class libraries, a runtime environment to manage these hardware objects and techniques for controlling such designs from the Java programming language.
