Spacewalker: Automated Design Space Exploration for Embedded Computer Systems
Keyword(s): design space exploration; VLIW; systolic array; cache
Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of automated design of a computer system for an embedded application. The computer system to be designed consists of a VLIW processor and/or a customized systolic array, along with a cache subsystem comprising a data cache, instruction cache and second-level unified cache. Several algorithms for "walking" the design space are described, and experimental results of custom designed systems for two applications are presented.
