In the university we worked (and they still do) on a similar approach for partial reconfiguration through the ICAP but that was handeled entirely by the FPGA itself. The maximum clock frequency for the ICAP was achieved with little FPGA resources consumption.
Seems to me that the tools have a long way to go to make dynamic reconfiguration something that most designs will be able to do. For example, the need to have the decoupling logic explicitly defined (if I'm reading the article correctly) is the type of thing I would expect to be handled automatically.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
