Data and memory optimization techniques for embedded systems
P. R. Panda, F. Catthoor, N. D. Dutt, K. Danckaert, E. Brockmeyer, C. Kulkarni, A. Vandercappelle, P. G. Kjeldsberg
Pages: 149-206
DOI: 10.1145/375977.375978
We present a survey of the state-of-the-art techniques used in performing data and memory-related optimizations in embedded systems. The optimizations are targeted directly or indirectly at the memory subsystem, and impact one or more out of...

An algorithm for synthesis of large time-constrained heterogeneous adaptive systems

Pages: 207-225
DOI: 10.1145/375977.375979
Large time-constrained applications are highly computer-intensive and are often implemented as a complex organization of pipelined data parallel tasks on a pool of embedded processors, DSP processors, and FPGAs. The large number of design...

Intrinsic response for analog module testing using an analog testability bus
Chauchin Su, Yue-Tsang Chen, Shyh-Jye Jou
Pages: 226-243
DOI: 10.1145/375977.375981
A parasitic effect removal methodology is proposed to handle the large parasitic effects in analog testability buses. The removal is done by an on-chip test generation technique and an intrinsic response extraction algorithm. On-chip test...

Verifying sequential equivalence using ATPG techniques
Shi-Yu Huang, Kwang-Ting Cheng, Kuang-Chien Chen
Pages: 244-275
DOI: 10.1145/375977.376022
In this paper we address the problem of verifying the equivalence of two sequential circuits. State-of-the-art sequential optimization techniques such as retiming and sequential redundancy removal can handle designs with up to hundreds or even...
