Abstract : Constant evolution of applications and an ever increasing need for performances make necessary the use of new dynamically reconfigurable systems on chip every times more highly capable and scalable. Consequently, these architectures constantly grow in complexity in terms of reconfiguration process and conception. The major issue was to design development frameworks based on high level architecture description languages (ADL). The ADLs are useful for the fast specification of hardware implementation and useful for giving architecture informations to the front-end tools. The area of this thesis is the architecture description, computer-aided design (CAD) and exploration of dynamically reconfigurable architectures. This document presents the development framework Mozaïc which aims at designing dynamically reconfigurable architecture by automatic generation of hardware resources needed. In the first part of this document, we detail the dynamic reconfiguration concepts developed and used by Mozaïc. In the second part, we present the ADL xMAML which permits the description and the efficient exploration of the concepts presented in the first part. This ADL is based on the MAML language developed at the University of Erlangen in Germany, to which was extended by adding new parameters required to make feasible dynamic reconfiguration of heterogeneous computing units. The last part of the document is dedicated to the presentation of the framework itself and of the various tools used to develop two reconfigurable architectures: FPGA and the DART. In particular is included the dynamic reconfiguration exploration and implementation of a WCDMA receiver on both architectures.
