Conventional synthesis algorithms schedule multiple precision specifications by balancing the number of operations of every different type and width executed per cycle. However, totally balanced schedules are not always possible and therefore some hardware waste appears. In this paper a heuristic scheduling algorithm to minimize this hardware waste is presented. It successively transforms specification operations into sets of smaller ones until the most uniform distribution of the computational effort of oper…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
