This paper proposes ReAdapt–a reconfigurable datapath architecture for scaling the energy-quality trade-off of adaptive filtering at runtime. The ReAdapt can dynamically select four adaptive filtering algorithms for gradating complexity levels during runtime by reconfiguring the processing flow in its datapath and by blocking the switching activity (e.g., reducing the CMOS dynamic power) of unused modules with data-gating. The ReAdapt proposal can scale the energy-quality trade-off by choosing the following four different levels of filter algorithms complexity: 1) least mean square (LMS); 2) partial update normalized LMS (PU-NLMS); 3) set-membership normalized LMS (SM-NLMS); 4) normalized LMS (NLMS). The ReAdapt architecture reuses common modules of each adaptive filter, resulting in a compact VLSI hardware implementation. The ReAdapt architecture operation is implemented in a case-study for interference mitigation for electroencephalogram (EEG) signal processing. The hardware synthesis results show an increase of 6.80 times in throughput and at least a reduction of 2.84 times in energy per operation compared with the state-of-the-art adaptive filters. This paper also investigates the benefits of dynamically reconfiguring the four ReAdapt operating modes at runtime for different levels of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for the processed signals. We also demonstrate that dynamically reconfiguring the ReAdapt operating modes during runtime results in an optimal energy-quality trade-off which is advantageous over the conventional single static mode.
