A system for communication between a plurality of functional elements in a cell arrangement and a higher-level unit is described. The system may include, for example, a configuration memory arranged between the functional elements and the higher-level unit; and a control unit configured to move at least one position pointer to a configuration memory location in response to at least one event reported by a functional element. At run time, a configuration word in the configuration memory pointed to by at least one of the position pointers is transferred to the functional element in order to perform reconfiguration without the configuration word being managed by a central logic.
