Abstract
This paper addresses the modelling and validation of an evolvable hardware architecture which can be mapped
on a 2D systolic structure implemented on commercial reconfigurable FPGAs. The adaptation capabilities of the
architecture are exercised to validate its evolvability. The underlying proposal is the use of a library of reconfigurable
components characterised by their partial bitstreams, which are used by the Evolutionary Algorithm to find a solution
to a given task. Evolution of image noise filters is selected as the proof of concept application. Results show that
computation speed of the resulting evolved circuit is higher than with the Virtual Reconfigurable Circuits approach, and
this can be exploited on the evolution process by using dynamic reconfiguration.
