Development process for clusters on a reconfigurable chip

Reconfigurable MPSoCs (Multiprocessor System-on-Chip) could be viable for certain applications niche where the flexibility of FPGAs (Field-Programmable Gate Array) and software is needed, and a small number of units dismiss other silicon options. However, their design complexity is very high, and raises additional problems, i.e. the definition of a suitable programming model, an efficient memory organization, and the need for ways to optimize application performance.
