A function enabling remote programming is necessary for systems at nuclear power plants, plants with no personnel, and other systems. Recently, an optically reconfigurable gate array (ORGA) architecture has been developed to achieve a huge virtual gate count that is much larger than those of currently available VLSIs. However, ORGA architectures have never realized a remote programming capability. Therefore, this paper proposes a new remotely reconfigurable gate array architecture that enables remote reconfiguration using optical fiber networks. Furthermore, this paper presents discussion of the availability of this architecture and future plans based on experimental results.
