The H2020 CERBERO European Project aims at developing a continuous design environment for CPS, including modelling, deployment and verification (http://www.cerbero-h2020.eu/). The efficient support for runtime reconfiguration, taking into account an uncertain environment with changing requirements, is among the CERBERO expected outcomes. In CERBERO, two tools offer support for hardware reconfiguration. The ARTICo3 framework provides adaptive and scalable hardware acceleration by using Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration (DPR) [1]. The MDC design suite, on the other hand, delivers Coarse-Grained Reconfigurable (CGR) systems based on the dataflow model of computation, and has been already proved to be a viable solution to enable adaptivity in CPS [2]. The integration of ARTICo3 and MDC combines together the benefits from both DPR and CGR, leading to the implementation of flexible systems that can adapt to the changing requirements of most CPS scenarios. Figure 1 shows the integrated design flow: it starts from high-level descriptions of the functionalities to be implemented; the integrated toolchain derives the corresponding CGR HDL computational kernel and wraps it with the logic necessary to serve as an ARTICo3 DPR reconfigurable partition. Finally, the bitstreams of the system (static part) and of the hardware accelerators (reconfigurable partitions) are generated. On the software side, the toolchain has the capability, inherited from ARTICo3, of generating the application executable that manages operation execution and computation offloading to the hardware accelerators. Bottom part of Figure 1 depicts an example of the implemented multi-grain reconfigurable architecture providing scalable parallelism through DPR and fast functional reconfiguration with CGR.
