There are a plethora of new emerging system applications for reconfigurable architectures. Interest in reconfigurability has evolved from basic programmable structures to include advanced architectural components including processors, DSP blocks and connectivity. Software design tools continue to evolve to incorporate reconfigurability within the context of Electronic System Level design (ESL). In what form will these new reconfigurable platforms come to the marketplace? What design tools, design skills and software design flows are nedded in this next wave of reconfigurable platforms?
