Abstract

A method, and system, for reconfiguring an FPGA which has a static region and a dynamic region is provided. The method includes the steps of: (a) providing a dynamic module library having information of predetermined modules; (b) receiving a reconfiguration request external to the FPGA; (c) computing reconfiguration of the FPGA at a predetermined location using predetermined module information from the dynamic module library and the reconfiguration request, and generating reconfigurable partial bitstreams; and (d) sending partial bitstreams from the predetermined location to the FPGA to perform the reconfiguration.
