Conclusions: This thesis discusses the modeling and implementation of reconfigurable hardware architectures for real-time applications. The target application in this work is digital holographic imaging, where visible images are to be reconstructed based on holographic recordings. The reconstruction process is computationally demanding and requires hardware acceleration to achieve real-time performance. Thus, this work presents two design approaches, with different levels of reconfigurability, to accelerate the image reconstruction process and related computationally demanding applications.
