Paper Abstract

This paper reviews hardware and software solutions that allow for rapid prototyping of new or modified embedded avionics sensor designs, mission payloads and functional sub assemblies. We define reconfigurable computing in the context of being able to place various PMC modules depending upon mission scenarios onto a base SBC (Single Board Computer). This SBC could be either a distributed or shared memory architecture concept and have either two or four PPC7447 A/7448 processor clusters. In certain scenarios, various combinations of boards could be combined in order to provide a heterogeneous computing environment.
