What is the difference among partial reconfiguration, dynamic reconfiguration and partial dynamic reconfiguration

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I have known the terms partial and dynamic reconfigurations before but not what they mean. Recently I came through this new term called partial dynamic reconfiguration.

So I was wondering, what is the difference among them?

 

Thanks in advance

partial reconfig = partial dynamic reconfig.

dynamic reconfig is (may be) more often used for DRP registers writing.

Overrall, they both dynamically reconfigure part of FPGA device. You need to understand them according to the text.

Hello @drjohnsmith ,

For partial reconfiguration, I found many resources on internet. The following youtube video is one
