Title: Introducing Complex Components into Architectural Synthesis
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: In this paper, we extend the set of library components which are usually considered in architectural synthesis by components with built-in chaining. For such components, the result of some internally computed arithmetic function is made available as an argument to some other function through a local connection. These components can be used to implement chaining in a data-path in a single component. Components with built-in chaining are combinatorial circuits. They correspond to ``complex gates in logic synthesis. If compared to implementations with several components, components with built-in chaining usually provide a denser layout, reduced power consumption, and a shorter delay time. Multiplier/accumulators are the most prominent example of such components. Such components require new approaches for library mapping in architectural synthesis. In this paper, we describe an IP-based approach taken in our OSCAR synthesis system.
