Power-conscious High Level Synthesis Using Loop Folding

  title={Power-conscious High Level Synthesis Using Loop Folding},
  author={Daehong Kim and Kiyoung Choi},
In this paper, a transformation technique, called power-consciousloop folding is proposed for high level synthesis of alow power system. Our work is focused on reducing the powerconsumed by functional units through the decrease of switchingactivity in a data path dominated circuit containing loops. Thetransformation algorithm has been implemented and integratedinto a high level synthesis system for experiments. In ourexperiments, we could achieve power reduction of up to 50% forcircuits… CONTINUE READING
