Phoenix CMU REconfigurable Nanotechnology Project
~ Reconfigurable hardware devices are hardware devices in which the functionality of the logic gates is customizable at run-time
~ connections between logic gates are also configurable
~ main ingredient used in building today's reconfigurable hardware fabrics is the memory cell
~ memories are used as look-up tables to implement universal gates, and are used to control configuration of the switches in interconnection network
~ program that indicates functionality of each gate and switch state is called a configuration
~ the most common type of reconfigurable hardware device is an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array)
