APDL: A Processor Description Language For Design Space Exploration of Embedded Processors
—This paper presents Anahita Processor Description Language (APDL) for generation of retargetable processor design tool sets. The emphasis is on the applicability of the generated tools in the design space exploration (DSE) phase of designing a new embedded processor. APDL descriptions can be used for generating cycle-accurate instruction set simulators, assembler/disassembler tools, production quality compilers and architecture verification tools. The paper first investigates the features required for a language to be useful for DSE and then presents APDL constructs along with code samples.
