1. “Reconfigurable Computing: The Theory and Practice of FPGA Based Computation” by Hauck

“Reconfigurable Computing: The Theory and Practice of FPGA Based Computation” Book Review: Reconfigurable computing systems join microprocessors and programmable hardware in order to take advantage of the combined strengths of hardware and software and have been used in applications ranging from embedded systems to high performance computing. Many of the fundamental theories have been identified and used by the Hardware/Software Co-Design research field. Although the same background ideas are shared in both areas, they have different goals and use different approaches.This book is intended as an introduction to the entire range of issues important to reconfigurable computing, using FPGAs as the context, or computing vehicles to implement this powerful technology. It will take a reader with a background in the basics of digital design and software programming and provide them with the knowledge needed to be an effective designer or researcher in this rapidly evolving field.

2. “Introduction to Reconfigurable Computing: Architectures, Algorithms, and Applications” by Christophe Bobda

“Reconfigurable Computing Systems Engineering: Virtualization of Computing Architecture” Book Review: This book offers a complete road map to the synthesis of RCS architecture, exposing hardware design engineers, system architects, and students specializing in designing FPGA-based embedded systems to novel concepts in RCS architecture organization and virtualization.This comprehensive text describes the organization of reconfigurable computing system (RCS) architecture and discusses the pros and cons of different RCS architecture implementations. Along with providing a solid understanding of RCS technology and where it’s most effective, this book: Details the architecture organization of RCS platforms for application-specific workloads and Covers the process of the architectural synthesis of hardware components for system-on-chip (SoC) for the RCS.

5. “Reconfigurable computing: QuickStart Administration” by Gerard Blokdyk

“Reconfigurable computing: QuickStart Administration” Book Review: Reconfigurable computing is a computer architecture combining some of the flexibility of software with the high performance of hardware by processing with very flexible high speed computing fabrics like field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This text contains extensive criteria grounded in past and current successful projects and activities by experienced Reconfigurable computing practitioners. Their mastery, combined with the uncommon elegance of the self-assessment, provides its superior value to you in knowing how to ensure the outcome of any efforts in Reconfigurable computing are maximized with professional results.

6. “New Algorithms, Architectures and Applications for Reconfigurable Computing” by Wolfgang Rosenstiel and Patrick Lysaght

“New Algorithms, Architectures and Applications for Reconfigurable Computing” Book Review: This book consists of a collection of contributions from the authors of some of the best papers from the Field Programmable Logic conference (FPL’03) and the Design and Test Europe conference (DATE’03). In all, seventy-nine authors, from research teams from all over the world, were invited to present their latest research in the extended format permitted by this special volume. The result is a valuable book that is a unique record of the state of the art in research into field programmable logic and reconfigurable computing. The contributions are organized into twenty-four chapters and are grouped into three main categories: architectures, tools and applications. Within these three broad areas the most strongly represented themes are coarse-grained architectures; dynamically reconfigurable and multi-context architectures; tools for coarse-grained and reconfigurable architectures; networking, security and encryption applications.

7. “Reconfigurable Computing: Accelerating Computation with Field-Programmable Gate Arrays” by Maya B Gokhale and Paul S Graham

“Reconfigurable Computing: Accelerating Computation with Field-Programmable Gate Arrays” Book Review: This book gives a comprehensive introduction to a discipline that offers a 10X-100X acceleration of algorithms over microprocessors. It also discusses the impact of reconfigurable hardware on a wide range of applications: signal and image processing, network security, bioinformatics, and supercomputing. Includes the history of the field as well as recent advances along with an extensive bibliography of primary sources.

8. “Secure Computing on Reconfigurable Systems” by Ricardo Chaves

“Secure Computing on Reconfigurable Systems” Book Review: This comprehensive text discusses a Secure Computing Module (SCM) for reconfigurable computing systems. Secure Computing (SC) provides a protected and reliable computational environment, where data security and protection against malicious attacks to the system is assured. SC is strongly based on encryption algorithms and on the attestation of the executed functions. The use of SC on reconfigurable devices has the advantage of being highly adaptable to the application and the user requirements, while providing high performances. Moreover, it is adaptable to new algorithms, protocols, and threats. In work, high performance cryptographic units for symmetric encryption and hash functions are presented in order to achieve a high performance SCM. A method to attest dynamically reconfigured hardware structures is also proposed, without penalizing the performance of the SCM. The presented attestation mechanism allows the configuration bitstreams to be stored in unsecured locations, such as on an external memory or the internet, without posing a security threat.

9. “Reconfigurable and Adaptive Computing: Theory and Applications” by Nadia Nedjah and Chao Wang

“Reconfigurable and Adaptive Computing: Theory and Applications” Book Review: Reconfigurable computing techniques and adaptive systems are some of the most promising architectures for microprocessors. This book explores the latest research activities on hardware architecture for reconfigurable and adaptive computing systems.The first section of the book covers reconfigurable systems. The book presents a software and hardware codesign flow for coarse-grained systems-on-chip, a video watermarking algorithm for the H.264 standard, a solution for regular expressions matching systems, and a novel field programmable gate array (FPGA)-based acceleration solution with MapReduce framework on multiple hardware accelerators. The second section discusses network-on-chip, including an implementation of a multiprocessor system-on-chip platform with shared memory access, end-to-end quality-of-service metrics modeling based on a multi-application environment in network-on-chip, and a 3D ant colony routing (3D-ACR) for network-on-chip with three different 3D topologies.
