In this paper we present an optimal and a heuristic approach to solve the binding problem which occurs in high-level synthesis of digital systems. The optimal approach is based on an integer linear programming formulation. Given that such an approach is not practical for large problems, we then derive a heuristic from the ILP formulation which produces very good solutions in order of seconds. The heuristic is based on a network flow model and also considers floorplanning during the design process to minimize the interconnection area.

Abstract

In this paper we present an optimal and a heuristic approach to solve the binding problem which occurs in high-level synthesis of digital systems. The optimal approach is based on an integer linear programming formulation. Given that such an approach is not practical for large problems, we then derive a heuristic from the ILP formulation which produces very good solutions in order of seconds. The heuristic is based on a network flow model and also considers floorplanning during the design process to minimize the interconnection area.
