Paper Abstract

Over the past three years we have developed a suite of software tools to support the use of systems with dynamically reconfigurable hardware by scientists and engineers who are not skilled hardware designers. A typical application for our system is the support software for a reconfigurable data acquisition card consisting of a fixed analog section and a configurable digital section built from one or more field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), static RAM chips, and, perhaps, a dedicated processor. In this paper we discuss our software tools, the prototype data acquisition hardware that we have developed, and an example application.
