Programming and implementation of reconfigurable routers

Andreas C. Döring, Wolfgang Obelöer, G. Lustig


Clusters made from standard PCs or workstations interconnected by a high-speed network form a high-performance parallel computer. High-speed networks consist of routers switching the data via several wire segments. In order to allow flexible use of the network the routers have to be reconfigurable. Such a router is described as an application of reconfiguration techniques and standard devices like FPGAs. The presented approach is based on the use of sets of rules to describe the router's behavior in a flexible manner. The rule set is translated to generate configuration data for the hardware.
