Controller Synthesis for Hardware Accelerator Design

Jiang, Hongtu LU and Öwall, Viktor LU (2002) Swedish System-on-Chip Conference 2002 (SSoCC 02)
Abstract
Efficient CAD tools are desired to reduce the increasing

design efforts when algorithms implemented on

ASICs are getting more complicated. For microprogrammed

accelerator design, a control unit synthesizer

is of great importance since the manual design

of a controller for a complicated task requires substantial effort. While a hardware specific implementation results in higher performance or lower power consumption than a programmable solution,

exibility might be crucial. Therefore, in the future it is desirable to have on chip control units to be more or less programmable. The goal of the project is to develop

design methodologies for such a design environment.

Those methodologies should be implemented into a

tool to reduce design time and allow exibility of the

design process. (Less)
