From their original use as replacement components for discrete digital logic chips, FPGA's have transitioned through interesting and rapid role changes. These changes have in turn driven changes in operating systems research as well. Like the past, future OS research in reconfigurable computing will continue to be influenced by change. However research directions are no longer driven just by the evolving roles of the FPGA devices but by the much broader events that are occurring in the general purpose computing community as well.
