Abstract


Institutions have been creating their own specific
weblab infrastructures. Usually, they use distinct software and
hardware architectures comprehending instruments and
modules (I&M) able to be parameterized but difficult to be
shared. These aspects are impairing their widespread in
education, since collaboration between institutions, in
developing and sharing resources, is still low. To handle both
aspects, this paper proposes the adoption of the IEEE1451.0 Std.
with FPGA technology for creating reconfigurable weblab
infrastructures. It is suggested the adoption of an IEEE1451.0
infrastructure with compatible instruments, described in
Hardware Description Languages (HDL), to be reconfigured in
FPGA-based boards. Besides an overview of the IEEE1451.0
Std., this paper presents a solution currently under development
which seeks to enable the reconfiguration and the remote control
of weblab infrastructures using a set of IEEE1451.0 HTTP
commands.
