Partitioning sequential programs for CAD using a three-step approach

  title={Partitioning sequential programs for CAD using a three-step approach},
  author={Frank Vahid},
  journal={ACM Trans. Design Autom. Electr. Syst.},
Many computer-aided design problems involve solutions that require the partitioning of a large sequential program written in a language such as C or VHDL. Such partitioning can improve design metrics such as performance, power, energy, size, input/output lines, and even CAD tool run-time and memory requirements, by partitioning among hardware modules, hardware and software processors, or even among time-slices in reconfigurable computing devices. Previous partitioning approaches typically… CONTINUE READING
