Abstract: Conventional synthesis algorithms perform the allocation of heterogeneous specifications, those formed by operations of different types and widths, by binding operations to functional units of their same type and width. Thus, in most of the implementations obtained some hardware waste appears. This paper proposes an allocation algorithm able to minimize this hardware waste by fragmenting operations into their common operative kernel, which then may be executed over the same functional units. Hence, fragmented…
