This article focuses on coarse-grain processor Architecture for Dynamically Reconfigurable Embedded System created by the Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center in Leuven, Belgium. The processor meets requirements of design-time and runtime reconfigurability for a range of embedded applications. Next-generation mobile terminals will have to efficiently deal with a multitude of communication modes such as WLAN, 3G/4G, 802.16e and DVB-H, along with content formats such as MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVC/H.264 and scalable video coding.
