Abstract
This work describes the identification of designs that benefit from a Dynamic Circuit Specialization (DCS) implementation on FPGAs. In DCS, the circuit is specialized for slowly changing inputs, called parameters. For certain applications or cores, a DCS implementation is faster and smaller than the original implementation. However, the best DCS implementation can be hard to identify, as it requires the designer to be familiar with both the design and DCS. In this paper, we present a profiling tool to aid the designer in analyzing the feasibility of a DCS implementation. It automatically provides a functional density estimate for the most interesting DCS implementations.
