Abstract:

This paper describes a proposed automatically reconfigurable cellular architecture. The unique feature of this architecture is that the reconfiguration control is distributed within the system. There is no need for global broadcasting of switch settings. This reduces the interconnection complexity and the length of data paths. The system can reconfigure at the request of the applications software or in response to detected faults. This architecture supports fault tolerant applications since the reconfiguration can be self-triggered from within. The complete reconfiguration process can proceed without external interference.
