Application-driven design of DSP architectures and compilers

  title={Application-driven design of DSP architectures and compilers},
  author={Mazen A. R. Saghir and Paul Chow and Corinna G. Lee},
Current DSP architectures are designed to enhance the execution of computationally-intensive, kernel-like loops. Their peculiar architectural features are often difficult for high-level language compilers to exploit. Moreover, their tightly-encoded instruction sets usually restrict the exploitation of instruction-level parallelism beyond a few instances. The quality of compiler-generated code is therefore poor when compared to hand-coded assembly language. In this paper we argue for an… CONTINUE READING
