Efficient CAD tools are desired to reduce the increasing
design efforts when algorithms implemented on
ASICs are getting more complicated. For microprogrammed
accelerator design, a control unit synthesizer
is of great importance since the manual design
of a controller for a complicated task requires substantial effort. While a hardware specific implementation results in higher performance or lower power consumption than a programmable solution,
exibility might be crucial. Therefore, in the future it is desirable to have on chip control units to be more or less programmable. The goal of the project is to develop
design methodologies for such a design environment.
Those methodologies should be implemented into a
tool to reduce design time and allow exibility of the
design process.
