This paper presents the design and prototyping of a computing architecture which dynamically reconfigures itself depending on the environment in which it resides. The system switches among three modes of operation (parallel processing, low power, and radiation tolerant) depending on an external radiation sensor and application input from the user. The system was prototyped on a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA to verify its feasibility when controlling a series of peripherals under the three modes of… CONTINUE READING
