Abstract: 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…
