It is our belief that future SOC devices will be overwhelm­
ingly programmable, consisting of soft­programmable
forms ­ as instruction set architectures, and hard­
programmable forms ­ realised as field programmable
logic. This paper explores an architectural structure which
integrates them both in a micronet­based multithreaded ar­

threading, Field Programmable Logic
1 Introduction
This paper describes briefly the introduction of hard­
programmability, in the form of field programmable logic,
in a micronet­based multithreaded instruction set architec­
ture [AR99].
