Abstract

In this paper we present a simulator for the reconfigurable mesh SIMD architecture. The purpose of the simulator is to assist in the analysis of algorithms and the visualisation of their behaviour. Furthermore, it can be used to demonstrate the potential of reconfiguration in an educational environment.
