Date of Defense 2010-12-20 Availability unrestricted AbstractThe Xilinx Partial Reconfiguration tool kits have been instrumental for performing a wide
variety of research on Xilinx FPGAs. These tool kits provide a methodology for creating
rectangular partial reconfiguration modules that can be swapped in and out of a static
baseline design with one or more PR slots. This thesis presents a new PR toolkit called
OpenPR that, for starters, provides similar functionality to the Xilinx PR tool kits. The
distinguishing feature of this toolkit is that it is being released as open source, and is intended
to be customizable to the needs of researchers. OpenPR has been designed to be easy to
use, extensible, portable, and compatible with a wide range of Xilinx software and devices.
Aside from supporting the slot-based PR paradigm, OpenPR also provides a solid base for
further research into partial reconfiguration and FPGA productivity oriented design tools.
