Effective compiler generation by architecture description

  title={Effective compiler generation by architecture description},
  author={Stefan Farfeleder and Andreas Krall and Edwin Steiner and Florian Brandner},
Embedded systems have an extremely short time to market and therefore require easily retargetable compilers. Architecture description languages (ADLs) provide a single concise architecture specification for the generation of hardware, instruction set simulators and compilers. In this article, we present an ADL for compiler generation. From a specification, we can derive an optimized tree pattern matching instruction selector, a register allocator and an instruction scheduler. Compared to a hand… CONTINUE READING
