There has been a great deal of innovation in the software space for smart phones, however, there has been virtually no room to innovate in the architecture space. By introducing a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) on mobile phone platforms, developers are able to produce hardware that their applications can use. We call re-programmable hardware on mobile phones mobware. In order to introduce mobware to mobile platforms, we leverage technology that contains a processor (ARM) coupled with FPGA so we can introduce reconfigurable logic to smart phones, expose the hardware to applications, and extend a mobile operating system to allow ...
