Abstract
We have been developing a parallel processor that it is possible to reconfigure hardware according to a software. Dynamic Reconfiguration means to change a kind of and a number of processing elements and connection between processing elements at real time. Our proposed processor creates a very long pipeline, which is able to execute for-loop calculation at very high speed. In this paper, we develop an algorithm which transform automatically a c-language program to a circuit diagram. Especially, we consider processing method of if-sentence and for-sentence and realize high-performance processing of them by a pipeline processing. The automatic transforming program is created by c-language. Finally, we examine a performance of this processor by using a MPEG decoding program.
