ASIP exploration uses the mappability method for the selection of processor core and algorithm combinations for multi-core designs. The mappability estimation is based on the analysis of the correlations of algorithm and core characteristics. This information is used for narrowing the exploration space of the subsequent ASIP design that exploits commercial ASIP design environment, Synopsys Processor Designer. According to simulation results the proposed ASIPs are able to achieve up to 96% of maximum performance with a clear reduction in complexity.
