Ideally, reconfigurable-system programmers and designers should code algorithms and write hardware accelerators independently of the underlying platform. To realize this scenario, the authors propose a portable, hardware-agnostic programming paradigm, which delegates platform-specific tasks to a system-level virtualization layer. This layer supports a chosen programming model and hides platform details from users much as general-purpose computers do.
