AbstractWe extend BORPH for shared memory reconfigurable computers in this paper. BORPH is an operating system designed for FPGA based reconfigurable computers. BORPH introduced the concept of hardware process in contrast to software process. With our extension, hardware processes are supported to communicate with other processes based on shared memory. In our system, the program of hardware process is not just hardware design, but the software program running on embedded processor in FPGA. Our experiment shows the overhead of shared memory segments management is acceptable. And with independent virtual memory access, bandwidth of repeated shared memory access is high.
