Hardware acceleration significantly increases the performance of embedded systems built on programmable logic. Allowing a FPGA-based MicroBlaze processor to self-select the coprocessors it uses can help reduce area requirements and increase a system's versatility. With a simple hardware arrangement, requiring only a few external connections and no additional components, low-cost FPGAs such as Xilinx's Spartan-3 can become self-reconfigurable platforms.
