An Architectural Framework for Automated Streaming Kernel Selection
Hardware accelerators are increasingly used to extend the computational capabilities of baseline scalar processors to meet the growing performance and power requirements of embedded applications. The challenge to the designer is the extensive human effort required to identify the appropriate kernels to be mapped to gates, and to implement a network of accelerators to execute the kernels. In this paper, we present a methodology to automate the selection of streaming kernels in a reconfigurable platform based on the characteristics of the application. The methodology is based on a flow graph that describes the streaming computations and communications. The flow graph is used to efficiently identify the most profitable subset of streaming kernels that optimize performance without exceeding the available area of the reconfigurable fabric.
