Making Biometrics the Killer App of FPGA Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration
In the current era of communications and information technologies, automatic biometric personal recognition systems represent the state of the art in high-performance signal- and image-processing applications. In fact, it is not difficult to find in our daily lives systems requesting our personal authentication/identification before allowing us to use them; electronic tellers, computers, mobile phones and even cars require such authorization. Many end-user applications that demand better levels of security than PINs, passwords or ID cards use personal recognition algorithms based on biometric (physiological or behavioral) characteristics, usually delivering them as a kernel.
