This paper describes the realization of a dynamically reconfigurable logic LSI based on a novel parallel computer architecture. The key point of the architecture is its dual-structured cell array which enables dynamic and autonomous reconfiguration of the logic circuits. The LSI was completed by successfully introducing two specific features: fully asynchronous logic circuits and a homogeneous structure, only LUTs are used.
