This paper is devoted to a low-complexity algorithm for retiming circuits without cycles, i.e., those whose network graph is a direct acyclic graph (DAG). On one hand, DAG’s have a great practical importance, as shown by the on-line arithmetic circuits used as a target application in this paper. On the other hand, retiming is a costly design optimization… (More)

CAD tools for special purpose architecture usually use conventional radix 2 number system to represent integers. However, DSP designer expertise shows that redundant number systems improve the delay of arithmetic operations. In this paper, we come to the conclusion that arithmetic operator outputs have to be redundant whereas inputs have not. Therefore, an… (More)

Summary form only given. We present a way to automatically select, within an architectural synthesis tool, the best operand and operator number systems, in order to find the best speed/area tradeoff. This implies the use of different number systems (redundant and non-redundant) for the same design: this is what we call mixed arithmetics. We present an… (More)

Integer Linear Programming (ILP) is commonly used in high level and system level synthesis. It is an NP-Complete problem (in general cases). There exists some tools that give an optimal solution for small ILP formulations. Nevertheless, these tools may not give solutions for complex formulations. In this paper, we present a solution to overcome the problem… (More)

This paper aims at addressing a particular aspect of multiobjective optimization problems in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). More specifically, we will present our study of the impact on quality and performance of evolutionary algorithms initial solutions. A new scheme for initial population generation is presented, which improves the quality and… (More)

Our goal is to design tools for high-level synthesis of special-purpose arithmetic circuits. After a presentation of what we call \mixed arithmetics" (that is, the use of diierent number systems on a same circuit), we propose a design strategy that could be used to automatically allocate a number system to each variable in a circuit.

Floorplanning is an important step of IC design. Traditionally, floorplan representation has been segregated between slicing and non-slicing structures. We present a heuristic that translates any arbitrary structure into a slicing one, topologically equivalent to the initial one after a 1-D compaction.

The increasing complexity of digital circuitry makes global design optimization no longer possible a designer will only consider the critical parts of his circuit This paper dis cusses timing optimization problems when these critical parts can be represented by Direct Acyclic Graphs DAGs We deal with di erent though related clock period problems under… (More)
