The studies of bitstream relocation can be divided into bitstream manipulation and relocatable partition design , .
Relocatable partition means that although the two partitions implemented different logic functions, they have same partition pins and relative routings between proxy logic and static region.
Finally, the whole design flow was given, and attention was focused on creating relocatable partitions.
The intrinsic evolvable system we proposed is composed of the following modules: a PowerPC based embedded system, a custom internal configuration access port (ICAP) with the feature of bitstream decompression, and relocatable partitions.
The details of how to create relocatable partitions were discussed in the following subsection.
The additional flow is used to create uniform relocatable partitions, and special attention is focused on it.
