This book is the proceedings volume of the 12th International Conference on Field-ProgrammableLogicandApplications(FPL)heldonSeptember2-4,2002. The conference was hosted by the Laboratoired'Informatique, de Robotique et de Micro' electronique de Montpellier (LIRMM), France. The FPL conference covered areas like recon?gurable logic and recon?gurable computing, as well as their application in various areas like DSP, communication and cryptography. Its subtitle "Recon?gurable Computing Is Going Mainstream" emphasizes the extensive role recon?gurablelogic has started to play. The annual FPL series is the oldest international conference in the world covering con?gware and all its aspects (also see: http://www.fpl.org). It was foundedin1991atOxfordUniversity(UK)andistwoyearsolderthanitstwo most important competitors, which usually take place in Monterey and Napa. FPLhasbeenheldinOxford(threetimes),Vienna,Prague,Darmstadt,London, Tallinn, Glasgow, Villach, and Belfast. It brings together experts, users, and newcomers from industry and academia in an informal, social, and productive atmosphere that encourages stimulating and pro?table interaction between the participants. Covered topics.
The scope of this conference has been substantially - tended over the past years and today also covers evolvable and adaptable s- tems,coarse-grainrecon?gurable(sub)systems,theirsynthesismethods and- plications,andtheirindispensableroleinSystem-on-a-Chip(SoC)development, aswellasrecon?gurablecomputing(RC)asanemergingnewparadigm,thre- ening to shakethe generalfoundations ofcomputer science: computing in space vs. computing in time. The application of ?eld-programmable logic in di?- ent areas has gained increasing importance also, and the number of according submissions has grown.
