It has been widely recognized that the dynamic range information of an application can be exploited to reduce the datapath bitwidth of either processors or ASICs, and therefore the overall circuit area, delay and power consumption. While recent proposals of analytical dynamic range estimation methods have shown significant advantages over the traditional profiling-based method in terms of runtime, we argue that the rather simplistic treatment of input correlation may lead to significant error… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that when applied to interesting nonlinear applications such as adaptive filters, polynomial filters and rational filters, this method can produce complete, accurate statistics of each internal variable, thereby allowing the synthesis of bitwidth with the desired tradeoff between circuit performance and signal-to-noise ratio.
