This paper proposes a new algorithm for Instruction implementation Method Selection Problem (IMSP) in ASIP (Application Specific Integrated Processors) design automation. This problem is to be solved in the instruction set architecture and CPU core architecture designs. First, the IMSP is formalized as an integer progmmming problem, which is to maximize the performance of the CPU under the constraints of chip area and power consumption. Then, a branch-andbound algorithm to solve IiWSP is… CONTINUE READING
