Bridging the Gap between Relocatability and Available Technology: The Erlangen Slot Machine

pdf-format:
Dokument 1.pdf (299 KB)


Abstract

We present an FPGA-based reconfigurable platform called Erlangen Slot Machine (ESM). The main advantages of this platform are: First, the possibility for each module to access peripherals independent from its location through a programmable crossbar, and local SRAM banks for individual modules. This physical design eases the implementation of run-time reconfigurable partial modules and enables an unrestricted relocation of modules on the device. We present our two-board ESM implementation and demonstrate a partially reconfigurable video filter application as well as a relocatable computer game including a dedicated inter-module communication scheme.
