A Novel Data-Path for Accelerating DSP Kernels
A high-performance data-path to implement DSP kernels is proposed in this paper. The data-path is based on a flexible, universal, and regular component to optimally exploiting both inter- and intra-component chaining of operations. The introduced component is a combinational circuit with steering logic that allows in easily realizing any desirable complex hardware unit, called template; so that the data-path’s performance benefits by the intra-component chaining of operations. Due to the component’s flexible and universal structure, the Data Flow Graph is realized by a small number of such components. The small numbers of the used components coupled with a configurable interconnection network allow adopting direct inter-component connections and optimally exploiting any inter-component chaining possibility over to the existing template-based methods. Also, due to universal and flexible structure of the component, scheduling and binding are accomplished by simple, yet efficient, alg...
