I am researching how to leverage average workload characteristics to optimize energy and throughput. In the Spec2006 benchmark, 320 instructions account for 60% of the instruction execution count. Further, 46% of instructions are integer operations, the average bitwidth of which is 13 bits. I hypothesize that a statically mapped asynchronous digit-serial CGRA can realize significant optimizations for general compute.

GPA 4.00

QDI design offers a unique pathway for describing circuitry algorithmically rather than structurally and automatically synthesizing that circuit through a set of formal transformations. I worked toward implementing the lower abstractions and associated tranformations of this pathway, designing a simulator, state space elaborator, and state conflict checker for Handshaking Expansions (HSE) along with partial implementations for unique state encoding, and guard strengthening.
