From Proceedings of the NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware, June 29-July 1, 2005 Washington D.C.
A hardware version of the Cell Matrix self-configurable architecture is described. Its main features are summarized, and the advantages of the hardware system over software simulators are discussed. Further details of the MOD 88's operation and software are given. An overview of the relation of the Cell Matrix and the MOD 88 to the field of evolvable hardware is given. Research and educational ideas are presented. A freely available, shared, online MOD 88 system is discussed.
