Reconfigurable integrated system array is a new form of field programmable digital device incorporating both hardware and software reconfigurable elements. RISA was developed specifically for implementing biologically inspired electronic systems. The architecture is particularly suited for investigating evolvable hardware due to the flexibility of RISA's configuration system. Fine grained partial reconfiguration is supported and random configuration bitstreams will not cause device damage. This paper describes the new RISA chip and the features that make it suitable for bio-inspired applications.
