The use of technology based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), a reconfigurable technology, has become a frequent object of study. This technique is feasible and a promising application in the development of embedded systems, however, the difficulty in finding a flexible and efficient way to perform such an application is their bigger problem. In this work, a virtual and reconfigurable architecture (AVR) in FPGA for hardware applications is presented using a Genetic Programming Software on the development of an optimal reconfiguration for this AVR, in order to build a hardware capable of performing a given task in an embedded system. This proposal is a simple, flexible and efficient way to achieve appropriate applications in embedded systems, when compared to other reconfigurable hardware techniques. The representation of phenotype of the proposed evolutionary system is based on a bi-dimensional network function elements (EF). The GPLAB tool for MATLAB is used in Genetic Programming, and the solution found by this procedure is converted into a memory mapping to represent the best solution, where it is used to reconfigure the hardware. In the tests, GPLAB found results for logic circuits in a few generations, and for image filters containing efficient solutions, where there was little hardware occupation, especially memory, in the cases this has been presented, with a reduced chromosome size, shows a proposal efficiency.
