Data Path Allocation using an Extended Binding Model

  title={Data Path Allocation using an Extended Binding Model},
  author={Ganesh Krishnamoorthy and John A. Nestor},
Existing approaches to data path allocation in highlevel synthesis use a bhling model in which values are assigned to the same register for their entire lifetimes. This paper describes an extended binding model in which segments of a value’s lifetime may reside in different registers if there is a cost advantage in doing so. In addition, the model supports multiple copies of values and the use of functional units to “pass through” unmodified values to reduce interconnect. This model is… CONTINUE READING
