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. Many analytical approaches are proposed for dynamic range estimation. However, because of the intractable nature of control-flow structures, all currently available methods consider only the systems consisting of pure dataflow structures/operations, while the general… Expand

Three mathematical tools, namely Karhunen-Loegraveve expansion, polynomial chaos expansion, and independent component analysis are introduced, which enable not only the orthogonal decomposition of input random processes, but also the propagation of random processes through both linear and nonlinear systems with difficult constructs such as multiplications, divisions, and conditionals.

TLDR
This paper proposes the first algorithm with the capacity of handling both near- Gaussian and non-Gaussian input signals, and shows that the new algorithm can reduce the original relative errors of 2nd order moments from 25%-65% to 1%-2%. Expand

This work introduces a new analytical method based on a mathematical tool called Karhunen-Loeve Expansion (KLE), which enables the orthogonal decomposition of random processes and shows that when applied to linear systems, this method can lead to much more accurate result than previously possible.
