Morphable Networked Micro-Architecture (MONARCH) is a architecture can adopt different forms depending on their application. It was developed by Raytheon Company under a DARPA program. The MONARCH micro-architecture is unique in its ability to reconfigure itself to optimize processing on the fly. MONARCH provides exceptional compute capacity and highly flexible data bandwidth capability with beyond state-of-the-art power efficiency, and it's fully programmable.
