Reconfigurable hardware systems offer great potential for improving performance over software through increased parallelism and reduced control overhead. However, the configuration of the hardware is performed statically, restricting the system's ability to adapt to the run-time environment. Thisthesis explores the possibility ot compiling from object code into a reconfigurable hardware structure at run-time to allow the hardware configuration to benefit from the behaviour of the currently executing code.
