This paper presents an approach for the integration of reconfigurable hardware and computer applications based on the concept of ubiquitous computing. The goal is to allow a network of reconfigurable hardware modules to be transparently accessible by client applications. The communication between them is done at the API level, and a Jini-based infrastructure is used to provide an interface for the client applications to find available reconfigurable hardware modules over the network. A DES-based cryptography …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
