Data path is the core of the processor; it is where all computations are performed. The other blocks in the processor are supporting units. At present, most of the popular processor hardware synthesis tools give higher priority to delay. So the processor synthesis tools tend to generate data path architecture for faster implementation. With increasing importance of power reduction on a processor, it is becoming necessary to evaluate different data path architectures from the point of view of both delay and power.
