An improved Dynamic, Partial and self reconfigurable interconnection network (Hybrid-2 Network) is presented for Dynamically Reprogrammable Resource Array (DRRA), which is a Coarse Grain Reconfiguration Architecture (CGRA). To justify the design decision, Hybrid-2 network implementation is compared against the possible implementations using Multiplexer, NoC, Crossbar and already published Hybrid-1 interconnection network. Results shows that newly presented Hybrid-2 Interconnection network take (1.08x, 0.104x, 0.212x and 0.681x) the area, (1x, 0.037x, 0.026x and 0.107x) the configuration bits of Multiplexer, NoC, Crossbar and Hybrid-1 Implementation respectively. Hybrid-2 network is also 2.87x and 5.86x faster than Multiplexer and Hybrid-1 networks.
