ADOPT: Efficient Hardware Address Generation in Distributed Memory Architectures
An address generation and optimization environment (ADOPT) for distributed memory architectures, is presented. ADOPT is oriented to minimize the area overhead introduced by the use of large numbers of customized address calculation units, needed to cope with the increasing bandwidth requirements of memory intensive real-time signal processing applications. Different high-level optimizing architectural alternatives are explored, such as algebraic optimizations and efficient data-path clustering and assignment, to minimize the space/time-multiplexed address unit cost. Furthermore, in order to significantly reduced the routingcomplexity, typically present in partitionedarchitectures, a methodology for the synthesis of a distributedarchitecture forhierarchical local controllers foraddress generation, is also proposed. The techniques presented are demonstrated on a realistic test-vehicle, showing significant savings on the overall addressing cost.
