  abstract =     "A new and efficient automatic hybrid method, called
                 Hy-EH, based on Virtual Reconfigurable Architectures
                 (VRAs) and implemented in Field Programmable Gate
                 Arrays (FPGAs) is proposed, for a hardware-embedded
                 construction of image filters. The method also
                 encompass an evolutionary software system, which
                 represents the chromosome as a bi-dimensional grid of
                 function elements (FEs), entirely parametrised using
                 the Verilog-HDL (Verilog Hardware Description
                 Language), which is reconfigured using the MATLAB
                 toolbox GPLAB, before its download into the FPGA. In
                 the so-called intrinsic proposals, evolutionary
                 processes take place internally to the hardware, in a
                 pre-defined fixed way, in extrinsic proposals
                 evolutionary processes happen externally to the
                 hardware. The hybrid Hy-EH method, described in this
                 paper allows for the intrinsic creation of a
                 flexible-sized hardware, in an extrinsic way i.e., by
                 means of an evolutionary process that happens
                 externally to the hardware. Hy-EH is also a convenient
                 choice as far as extrinsic methods are considered,
                 since it does not depend on a proprietary solution for
                 its implementation. A comparative analysis of using the
                 Hy-EH versus an existing intrinsic proposal, in two
                 well-known problems, has been conducted. Results show
                 that by using Hy-EH there was little hardware
                 complexity due to the optimised and more flexible use
                 of shorter chromosomes.",
