The practical application of retiming to the design of high-performance systems

  title={The practical application of retiming to the design of high-performance systems},
  author={Brian Lockyear and Carl Ebeling},
Many advances have been made recently in the theory of circuit retiming, especially for circuits that use level-sensitive latches. In spite of this, automatic retiming tools have seen relatively little use in practice. One reason for this is the lack of good speedup results when retiming has been applied to real circuits. Another reason is that retiming has used a rather simple circuit model which reduces its utility in practice. This paper addresses both of these issues. We suggest that the… CONTINUE READING
