The increasing role of software in the embedded systems has made processor an important component in these systems. However, to meet the tight constraints of embedded application, it is often required to customize the processor for the application. Customizing instruction-based processors is difficult and very challenging. Design approaches based on statically-scheduled horizontal-micro coded architectures have been proposed to simplify the architecture customization. In these approaches, first the datapath is specified by the designer, and then the operations of the datapath are extracted automatically.
