Recently, Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs) are widely used for prototyping of development, scientific calculation, education, and nowadays even for consumer products, since designers can program, in other words, configure functions on the device by themselves and achieve short-term and low-cost design. Led by the advance of the technologies, the performance, the functionality, and the flexibility of PLDs has been significantly extended and they draw attention as a key device to open up a vista of the computer system called reconfigurable computing. Self-reconfigurable architecture is proposed as such an evolution of PLDs with the unique characteristics as array of homogeneous, relocatable, and expandable cells; unification of logic and memory; asynchronous cooperation of circuits; and dynamic reconfiguration by itself.
