Automatic Generation of Efficient Parallel Streaming Structures for Hardware Implementation
Digital signal processing systems demand higher computational performance and more operations per second than ever before, and this trend is not expected to end any time soon. Processing architectures must adapt in order to meet these demands. The two techniques most prevalent for achieving throughput constraints are parallel processing and stream processing. By combining these techniques, significant throughput improvements have been achieved. These preliminary results apply to specific applications, and general tools for automation are in their infancy. In this dissertation techniques are developed to automatically generate efficient parallel streaming hardware architectures.
