Dynamically Reconfigurable Chips

A new kind of custom chip has recently become available. The technology is still a little experimental and some of the initial claims seem a bit wild, but if these dynamically configurable chips live up to even some of their promise, they might become a big part of the overall microprocessor and custom-chip businesses.

The concept is called dynamically reconfigurable logic, although it's known by many other names as well: Reconfigurable computing, adaptive logic, and self-adaptive processing are all terms that are bandied about. Whatever you call it, the idea is certainly interesting.

About Dynamically Reconfigurable Logic

One thing all ASICs have in common is that once the chip is built, it can never be changed. ...
