The growing trend towards adoption of flexible and heterogeneous, parallel computing architectures has increased the challenges faced by the programming community. We propose a method to program an emerging class of reconfigurable processor arrays by using the CSP based programming model of occam-pi. The paper describes the extension of an existing compiler platform to target such architectures. To evaluate the performance of the generated code, we present three implementations of the DCT algorithm. It is concluded that CSP appears to be a suitable computation model for programming a wide variety of reconfigurable architectures.
