Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a mixed-grained reconfigurable architecture
that supports C-based behavioral synthesis and flexible reliability.
Thanks to adopting fine-grained fabrics, a state machine, which is indispensable for behavioral synthesis through multi-step processing using dynamic reconfiguration, can be accommodated. Moreover, both fine-grained and coarse-grained fabrics can be configured for different levels of reliability depending on the reliability requirement of target applications. This architecture provides the trade-off between resource usage and latency. Through a case study of FFT implementation, we experimentally explore the appropriate number of implementable states on the array which determines the achievable trade-off between used silicon area and latency taking into account the configuration register overhead
that is proportional to the number of implementable states.
