Abstract

This paper presents a design method to minimize energy of both functional units (FUs) and an interconnection network between FUs. To reduce complexity of the interconnection network, data transfers between FUs are classified according to FU types of operations in a data flow graph. The basic idea behind reducing the complexity of the interconnection network is that the interconnection resource can be shared among data transfers with the same FU type of a source node and the same FU type of a destination node. Moreover, an efficient method based on a genetic algorithm is presented.
