Lviv Polytechnic National University, Department of Information Technology Security

The principles of design and operation of the multiprocessor self-configurabre FPGAbased computer systems are proposed in the article. The method of information processing and the structure of such system are developed. Its timing characteristics are explored. The conditions are determined necessary to achieve the high performance by the multiprocessor self-configurable computer system, and the approaches to implement these conditions are analyzed.
