This paper describes a set of novel tradeoff experiments using MABAL, a Module And Bus ALlocation program. MABAL uses a simple heuristic algorithm to concurrently perform functional unit allocation, register allocation, interconnect allocation and module binding, while miniiizing overall cost. MABAL was used to produce over 3000 RTL designs from a specification which had been previously scheduled.
