Code generation of nested loops for DSP processors with heterogeneous registers and structural pipelining
Wei-Kai Cheng, Youn-Long Lin
Pages: 231-256
DOI: 10.1145/315773.315776
We propose a microcode-optimizing method targeting a programmable DSP processor. Efficient generation of microcodes is essential to better utilize the computation power of a DSP processor. Since most state-of-the-art DSP processors feature some...

Performance estimation of embedded software with instruction cache modeling
Yau-Tsun Steven Li, Sharad Malik, Andrew Wolfe
Pages: 257-279
DOI: 10.1145/315773.315778
Embedded systems generally interact in some way with the outside world. This may involve measuring sensors and controlling actuators, communicating with other systems, or interacting with users. These functions impose real-time constraints on...

Simulation and sensitivity of linear analog circuits under parameter variations by Robust interval analysis
C.-J. Richard Shi, Michael W. Tian
Pages: 280-312
DOI: 10.1145/315773.315780
An interval-mathematic approach is presented for frequency-domain simulation and sensitivity analysis of linear analog circuits under parameter variations. With uncertain parameters represented as intervals, bounding frequency-domain responses...

Functional multiple-output decomposition with application to technology mapping for lookup table-based FPGAs
Bernd Wurth, Ulf Schlichtmann, Klaus Eckl, Kurt J. Antreich
Pages: 313-350
DOI: 10.1145/315773.315783
Functional decomposition is an important technique for technology mapping to look up table-based FPGA architectures. We present the theory of and a novel approach to functional disjoint decomposition of multiple-output functions, in which common...
