Abstract

In this paper, a solution to support the run-time readback, relocation and replication of cores in embedded systems with dynamic and partial reconfiguration capabilities is presented. The proposal shows a peripheral structure that allows an easy integration and communication with the rest of the system, including an API to make the reconfiguration details to be more transparent to software applications. Differently to other proposals, all functionality is implemented in hardware, achieving a higher reconfiguration speed. In addition, different design decisions have been taken in order to increase the portability of the solution to existing and, possibly, future FPGAs. Finally, a use case is provided, which shows the features of this module applied to the run-time scaling of a hardware coprocessor.
