Custom-fit Processors: Letting Applications Define Architectures

  title={Custom-fit Processors: Letting Applications Define Architectures},
  author={Joseph A. Fisher and Paolo Faraboschi and Giuseppe Desoli},
In this paper we report on a system which automatically designs realistic VLIW architectures highly optimized for one given application (the input for this system), while running all other code correctly. The system uses a product-quality compiler that generates very aggressive VLIW code. We retarget the compiler until we have found a VLIW architecture idealized for the application on the basis of performance, a cost function and a hardware budget. We show that we can automatically select… CONTINUE READING
