  6. 6. Motivations <ul><li>Increasing need for behavioral flexibility in embedded systems design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Support of new standards, e.g. in media processing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Addition of new features </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Applications too large to fit on the device all at once </li></ul><ul><li>Speedup the overall computation of the final system </li></ul><ul><li>However, we need a way to process a specification to make it suitable for reconfigurable implementation </li></ul>
  7. 7. Reconfiguration <ul><li>The process of physically altering the location or functionality of network or system elements. Automatic configuration describes the way sophisticated networks can readjust themselves in the event of a link or device failing, enabling the network to continue operation. </li></ul><ul><li>Gerald Estrin, 1960 </li></ul>
  8. 8. Reconfiguration in everyday life <ul><li>Soccer </li></ul>Hockey Football (Complete – Static) (Partial – Dynamic) (Partial – Static)
