This document presents a persistence management model for reconfigurable SoC. This model provides an efficient mechanism for persistence to preserve data information of hardware components that are swapped out of dynamically reconfigurable areas, in order to allow the reinsertion of these components and to restart the execution path from the same point where they were interrupted when reinserted. This mechanism allows state management of components instantiated not only in reconfigurable areas, but also for those instantiated in static areas, that are feasible to be stopped and replaced for new versions instantiated in hardware or implemented in software migrating their state to the new ones.
