<hardware> (ARM) An efficient mechanism which allows reconfiguration of the hardware logic of a system according to the particular data received or transmitted.
In ARM each message contains extra information in a Reconfiguring Header in addition to the data to be transferred. Upon arrival of the message the Reconfiguring Header is extracted, decoded and used to perform on-the-fly hardware reconfiguration. As soon as the hardware has been reconfigured the data information of the message can be processed.
