Design Optimization

Abstract

The area of design optimization is where the performance of a design can be made drastically better than an initial naive implementation. Before discussing details of how to make the designs optimal for the individual goals of speed, area, and power (the “big three” for design optimization generally in digital design and particularly for FPGAs), it is useful to discuss some principles of what happens when we synthesize a function into hardware.
