<p>Focuses on the characterization and classification of reconfiguration techniques. The techniques are differentiated according to the type of redundancy (time or hardware), allocation of redundancy (local or global), replacement unit, (processor or a set of processors), switching domain (global or local), and switching implementation (switching element, bus, or network). Typical techniques from four major classes-set switching, processor switching, local redundancy, and time redundancy-are reviewed. The proposed taxonomy can be used as a guide for future research in design and analysis of reconfiguration schemes.</p>
