Bespoke Processors for Applications with Ultra-Low Area and Power Constraints

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article makes the case for bespoke processor design, an automated approach that tailors a general-purpose processor IP to a target application by removing all gates from the design that can never be used by the application. The resulting processors are more area- and energy-efficient without sacrificing performance.
