Storage requirement estimation for optimized design of data intensive applications
P. G. Kjeldsberg, F. Catthoor, E. J. Aas
Pages: 133-158
DOI: 10.1145/989995.989996
A novel storage requirement estimation methodology is presented for use in the early system design phases when the data transfer ordering is only partially fixed. At that stage, none of the existing estimation tools are adequate, as they either...

IDDX-based test methods: A survey
Sagar S. Sabade, Duncan M. Walker
Pages: 159-198
DOI: 10.1145/989995.989997
Supply current measurement-based test is a valuable defect-based test method for semiconductor chips. Both static leakage current (IDDQ) and transient current (IDDT) based tests have the capability of detecting unique defects...

Stairway compaction using corner block list and its applications with rectilinear blocks
Yuchun Ma, Xianlong Hong, Sheqin Dong, Yici Cai, Chung-Kuan Cheng, Jun Gu
Pages: 199-211
DOI: 10.1145/989995.989998
Corner Block List (CBL) was recently proposed as an efficient representation for MOSAIC packing of rectangles. Although the original method is really innovative, there still remains room for improvement for our purpose. This article proposes a...

Buffer merging—a powerful technique for reducing memory requirements of synchronous dataflow specifications
Praveen K. Murthy, Shuvra S. Bhattacharyya
Pages: 212-237
DOI: 10.1145/989995.989999
We develop a new technique called buffer merging for reducing memory requirements of synchronous dataflow (SDF) specifications. SDF has proven to be an attractive model for specifying DSP systems, and is used in many commercial tools like System...

A two-layer library-based approach to synthesis of analog systems from VHDL-AMS specifications
Alex Doboli, Nagu Dhanwada, Adrian Nunez-Aldana, Ranga Vemuri
Pages: 238-271
DOI: 10.1145/989995.990000
This paper presents a synthesis methodology for analog systems described using VHDL-AMS language. Synthesis produces net-lists of analog components that are selected from a library, and sized so that specified objectives (like AC response, signal to...
