Reduction of Latency and Resource Usage in Bit-Level Pipelined Data Paths for FPGAs
Pipelining of data path structures increases the throughput rate at the expense of enlarged resource usage and latency unless architectures optimized towards specific applications are used. This paper describes a novel methodology for the design of generic bit-level pipelined data paths that have the low resource usage and latency of specifically tailored architectures but still allow the flexible trade-off between speed and resource requirements inherent in generic circuits. This is achieved through the elimination of all skew and alignment flip-flops from the data path whilst still maintaining the original pipelining scheme, hence allowing more compact structures with decreased circuit delays. The resulting low latency is beneficial in the realization of all recursive signal-processing applications and the reduced resource usage enables particularly the efficient FPGA realization of high performance signal processing functions. The design process is illustrated through the high leve...
