    • found: DARPA BAA 99-02 Adaptive Computing Systems Proposer Information Pamphlet via WWW, Nov. 27, 2002 ("The Adaptive Computing Systems (ACS) program solicits research to define, develop and accelerate the adoption of a new class of computing and communication system composed of configurable hardware capable of supporting system-level adaptation. The adaptation is driven by the need for optimum performance across rapidly evolving computational, environmental, and fault tolerance constraints ... A key goal of ACS is to enable the reconfiguration to occur during execution, i.e., in real-time.")

In its current realizations, a configurable computing system consists of a set of general-purpose processors augmented with a set of field-programmable gate arrays.")
