A new paradigm to design computer systems called evolving reconfigurable architecture (ERA) is proposed. Several holistic principles are introduced and pursued through the ERA design cycle. We show how reconfigurability is implemented at the level of hardware elements and system software structure. Two new models: (i) graph-logic and (ii) control-data-predicate are introduced and applied in the ERA. We propose a scheme to transform sequential programs for execution on ERA, we also show that ERA has exceptional flexibility and reconfigurability and fits embedded, high performance and safety critical applications. Finally, further progress of ERA is discussed.
