TitleUsing Symbolic Algebra in Algorithmic Level DSP Synthesis
Author(s) Giovanni De Micheli, Armita Peymandoust
TypeArticle in Conference Proceedings
AbstractCurrent multimedia applications require the design of datapath intensive circuits. Unfortunately, current design tools and methods support design abstraction at a level that is inferior to the expectation of designers. Namely, most arithmetic-level optimizations are not supported and they are left to the designers' ingenuity. In this paper, we show how symbolic algebra can be used to construct an arithmetic-level decomposition algorithm. We also introduce our tool, SymSyn, that performs arithmetic library mapping and optimization of data-flow descriptions into data paths using arithmetic components.
