Abstract.
In this paper we?ll make a short review of the evolution of reconfigurable devices and their role inside reconfigurable systems, that we'll use to introduce an new emerging field: reconfigurable computing. We?ll give the clues to understand its possibilities, as well as the applications that better suit to this techniques and systems, in the midway between pure hardware and software solutions.
