i'm trying to get started with my research on dynamic partial reconfiguration and therefore i would you to ask you, which FPGA would be a good starting point?
I've got a board from Xilinx with a Spartan 3A on it, but i'm not sure if this device does have the same dynamic partial reconfiguration possibilites like a Virtex 2(pro) does? Any recommendations?
Need some advice on that topic please!
Thanks in advance :-)

many thanks for your reply. I've just checked the mentioned document and noticed after reading chapter 1, that all devices smaller than the Virtex-4 are not listed.
But i've seen a whole bunch of papers in which the Virtex-2(pro) is used for dynamic partial reconfiguration and i'm just curious why it's not explecitely mentioned in this user guide.
Anyway, i'll switch to the v4 and have another try :-)
Beside that: is it possible to reconfigure dynamically the Spartan 3A by using the PCAP?
