Advanced datapath synthesis using graph isomorphism
This paper presents an advanced DAG-based algorithm for datapath synthesis that targets area minimization using logic-level resource sharing. The problem of identifying common specification logic is formulated using unweighted graph isomorphism problem, in contrast to a weighted graph isomorphism using AIGs. In the context of gate-level datapath circuits, our algorithm solves the unweighted graph isomorphism problem in linear time. The experiments are conducted within an industrial synthesis flow that includes the complete high-level synthesis, logic synthesis and placement and route procedures. Experimental results show a significant runtime improvements compared to the existing datapath synthesis algorithms.
