  Detailed Listing of Events for 11/09 - 11/22


  Thursday, November  9, 2000. Time: 3pm-4pm 
  Subject: Ph.D. Oral Exam *Synthesis of Hardware from C* 
  Luc Semeria. Packard 204. 
   http://azur.stanford.edu/~lucs/orals.html

Application of Pointer Analysis to the Synthesis of Hardware from C

                                Luc Semeria

                     Packard Electrical Engineering 204
                            Stanford University
                        Thursday, Nov. 9 2000, 3 pm



With the advances in Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology, the design of
digital circuits is becoming more and more like the development of software.
Hardware is modeled using Hardware Description Languages (HDLs) very much
like software is described using programming languages. Synthesis tools are
used like compilers to map these HDL models into hardware. However, modern
systems, which consist of mixed software/hardware modules, are often
initially modeled using programming languages instead of HDLs. Specifically,
C/C++-based languages with hardware support are used to quickly verify the
functionality and estimate the performances at the system level.

One of the greatest challenges in C/C++-based design methodology is to
efficiently map C/C++ models into hardware. Many of the networking and
multimedia applications implemented in hardware or mixed hardware/software
systems are making use of complex data structures stored in one or multiple
memories. As a result, many of the C/C++ features that were originally
designed for software applications are now making their way into hardware.
Such features include dynamic memory allocation and pointers used to manage
data.

In this talk, I present a solution for efficiently mapping arbitrary C code
with pointers and malloc/free into hardware. In hardware, a pointer is not
only the address of data in memory, but it may also reference data mapped to
registers, ports or wires. Pointer analysis is used to find the set of
locations each pointer may reference in a program at compile time. The
values of the pointers are then encoded, and branching statements are used
to dynamically access data referenced by pointers. Dynamic memory allocation
and deallocation are supported by instantiating hardware memory allocators
tailored to an application and a memory architecture. Several optimizations
may also be performed. A heuristic algorithm is presented to efficiently
encode the values of the pointers. Compiler techniques may also be used to
reduce storage before loads and stores.

An implementation using the Suif compiler framework is presented, followed
by some examples of implementations taken from multimedia and networking
applications.
