Abstract: This paper presents a new algorithm for on-the-fly data compression in high performance VLIW processors. The algorithm aggressively targets energy minimization of some of the dominant factors in the SoC energy budget (i.e., main memory access and high throughput global bus). Based on a differential technique, both the new algorithm and the HW compression unit have been developed to efficiently manage data compression and decompression into a high performance industrial processor architecture, under strict rea…
