It is valuable to identify and catalog design patterns for reconfigurable computing. These design patterns are canonical solutions to common and recurring design challenges which arise in reconfigurable systems and applications. The catalog can form the basis for creating designs, for educating new designers, for understanding the needs of tools and languages, and for discussing reconfigurable design. Tying application and implementation lessons to the expansion and refinement of this catalog will make those lessons more relevant to the design community. In this paper, we articulate this role for design patterns in reconfigurable computing, provide a few example patterns, offer a starting point for the contents of the catalog, and discuss the potential benefits of this effort.

Primary support for this project has come from NSF grant number CCR-0205471 and a grant from the Okawa Foundation. Stephan Lavavej was involved in early discussions which helped catalyze our study of patterns. Randy Harr, Steve Trimberger, Kees Vissers, John Wawrzynek, and Nicholas Weaver provided valuable feedback on early versions of these ideas and suggested pattern ideas.
