Rethinking Digital Design: Why Design Must Change

Ofer Shacham, Omid Azizi, Megan Wachs, Stephen Richardson, Mark Horowitz
2010 IEEE Micro  
Years of research have taught us that the best-and perhaps only-way to save energy is to cut waste.  ...  Consequently, almost all systems designed today, from high-performance servers to wireless sensors, are becoming energy constrained.  ...  To this end, after the application designer provides the chip program and the design objective and constraints (for instance, maximize performance under some power and area budget), the generator engine  ...

The MIMOLA design system: a computer aided digital processor design method

G. Zimmermann
1988 Papers on Twenty-five years of electronic design automation - 25 years of DAC  
Comparisons with methods using hardware and functional descriptions are included. The application of the macro processor is explained.  ...  A top-down design method is presented. The design starts with an algorithmic description of the problems and attempts to find an optimal hardware structure for the solution of the problems.  ...  If the goal is to design a processor only capable of executing this function, we can still speak of a functional description.  ...
