McKeever S, Luk W, 2001, Towards provably-correct hardware compilation tools based on pass separation techniques, Pages: 212-227, ISSN: 0302-9743
This paper presents a framework for verifying compilation tools based on parametrised hardware libraries expressed in Pebble, a simple declarative language. Anapproach based on pass separation techniques is described for specifying and verifying Pebble abstraction mechanisms, such as the loop statement.We show how this approach can be used to verify the correctness of the flattening procedure in the Pebble compiler, which also results in a more efficient implementation than a non-verified version. The approach is useful for guiding compiler implementations for Pebble and related languages such as VHDL; it may also form the basis for automating the generation of provably-correct tools for hardware development. © 2001 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
Boullis N, Mencer O, Luk W, et al., 2001, Pipelined Function Evaluation on FPGAs, Pages: 304-306
© 2001 Non IEEE. This paper presents an approach to parameterizing pipelined designs for differentiable function evaluation using lookup tables, adders and multipliers. Trade-offs involved in implementing the lookup table as a full table or as bipartite tables are discussed. In case of implementations with a lookup table and a multiplier, equations estimating approximation errors and rounding errors can be used to parameterize the hardware unit. The method is implemented as part of the PAM-Blox module generation environment. An example shows that our approach produces competitive designs with data widths up to 20 bits when compared with shift-and-add based CORDIC units; it can be used for larger data widths when evaluating functions not supported by CORDIC.

Derbyshire A, Luk W, 2000, Combining serialisation and reconfiguration for FPGA designs, Pages: 636-645, ISSN: 0302-9743
© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2000. This paper describes a tool framework and techniques for combining serialisation and reconfiguration to produce efficient designs. Convolver and matrix multiplier designs are examined. Several optimisation techniques, such as restructuring and pipeline morphing, are presented with an analysis of their impact on performance and resource usage. The proposed techniques do not require the basic processing element to be modified. An estimate of the performance of the serial designs is given when mapped using distributed arithmetic and constant multiplier cores onto a Xilinx Virtex FPGA.
Zhang XJ, Ng KW, Luk W, 2000, A combined approach to high-level synthesis for dynamically reconfigurable systems, Pages: 361-370, ISSN: 0302-9743
© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2000. In this paper, two complementary design models and related synthesis techniques are combined to capture behavioral and structural information in modelling and synthesizing a dynamically reconfigurable system. The proposed formulation is achieved by using finite domain constraints and related constraint-solving techniques offered by constraint logic programming. Our formulation represents operation-level temporal constraints and dynamic resource constraints in a unified model. Different synthesis tasks, such as temporal partitioning, scheduling and dynamic module allocation can be modelled in this framework, enabling the discovery of an optimal or near optimal solutions. Experiments have been carried out using a prototype of the high-level synthesis system implemented in CHIP, a constraint logic programming system. Current experimental results show that our approach can provide promising synthesis results in terms of the synthesis time and the number of reconfigurations.

Constantinides GA, Cheung PYK, Luk W, 1999, Truncation noise in fixed-point SFGs, Electronics Letters, Vol: 35, Pages: 2013-2014, ISSN: 0013-5194
A new model for predicting truncation error variance in fixed-point filter implementations is introduced. The proposed model is shown to be more accurate than existing models, particularly for some direct hardware implementations. In addition, some comments are made on the applicability of existing error models.
