Domain specific coarse-grained reconfigurable architectures offer a performance and efficiency close to hardwired implementations when accelerating multiple selected data intensive algorithms. However, this requires the transfer of algorithms onto the coarse-grained reconfigurable architecture to lead to an as high as possible utilization. This paper introduces a modeling framework for a model-based configuration workflow enabling algorithm experts and hardware experts to collaboratively and efficiently transfer algorithms onto a coarse-grained reconfigurable architecture. The concept was validated by the implementation and the testing of respective prototypes.
