The best way to build a processing fabric depends on the software being run. By using an FPGA to host the processing, you can defer making specific decisions on the exact implementation until you know more about the needs of the code. The new Teja FP platform provides a methodology and multicore infrastructure on Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs, allowing you to decide on the exact configuration of the multicore fabric after the code has been written.
