Reconfiguration schemes for replacing faulty cells (processing elements) with spare cells are introduced for massive parallel rectangular mesh array processors with fine-grained cells. The authors introduce the concept of two-level redundancy as an effective way of using redundant units to reduce the complexity of reconfiguration control circuitry, to limit the length of connecting wires after
