Abstract: This paper details the first step of the Design Trotter framework for design space exploration applied to dedicated SOCs. The aim of this step is to provide metrics in order to guide the designer and the synthesis tool towards an efficient application architecture matching. This work presents a computation of metrics at all levels of the application graph-based hierarchy. These metrics are computed through data and control dependency analysis. They quantify the memory, control and processing orientations as we…
