Abstract

A method for tailoring a bespoke processor includes generating first gate-level activity information of a general purpose processor design for all possible executions of a first target application for any possible inputs to the first target application. The method includes gate cutting and stitching based on the first gate-level activity information to remove unusable gates from the general purpose processor design and reconnect cut connections between the remaining gates of the general purpose processor design to generate a bespoke processor design for the first target application.
