  abstract =     "The authors present a novel virtual reconfigurable
                 architecture (VRA) for realising real-world
                 applications of intrinsic evolvable hardware (EHW) on
                 field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The phenotype
                 representation of the proposed evolvable system is
                 based on a two-dimensional function element (FE)
                 network. Compared with the traditional Cartesian
                 genetic programming, the proposed approach includes
                 more connection restrictions in the FE network to
                 reduce genotype length. Another innovative feature of
                 the VRA is that the whole evolvable system, which
                 consists of an evolutionary algorithm unit, a fitness
                 value calculation unit and an FE array unit, can be
                 realised on a single FPGA. On this work, a custom
                 Xilinx Virtex xcv2000E FPGA, which is fitted in the
                 Celoxica RC1000 peripheral component interconnect (PCI)
                 board is used as the hardware platform. The main motive
                 of the research is to design a general, flexible
                 evolvable system with powerful computation ability to
                 achieve intrinsic evolution. As examples, the proposed
                 evolvable system is devoted to evolve two real-world
                 applications: a character recogniser and an image
                 operator by using gate level evolution and function
                 level evolution, respectively. The experimental results
                 show that the VRA can bring higher computational
                 ability and more flexibility than traditional approach
                 to intrinsic EHW.",
