REconfigurable POlymorphic MOdule (REPOMO) will be a new reconfigurable chip intended for experimental applications of evolvable and polymorphic hardware. In this paper, we analyze various reconfiguration options for this platform with the aim of finding such a reconfiguration subsystem which maximizes the success rate of evolutionary circuit design conducted using REPOMO. An interesting outcome of this analysis is that a relatively high success rate of evolutionary design can be achieved using
