Abstract
Dynamic hardware generation reduces the number of FPGA resources needed and speeds up the application by optimizing the configuration for the exact problem at hand at run-time. If the problem changes, the system needs to be reconfigured. When this occurs too often, the total reconfiguration overhead is too high and the benefit of using dynamic hardware generation vanishes. Hence, it is important to minimize the number of reconfigurations.
Keywords
