Historically, hardware acceleration technologies have either been application-specific, therefore lacking in flexibility, or fully programmable, thereby suffering from notable inefficiencies on an application-by-application basis. To address the growing need for domain-specific acceleration technologies, In this paper, the authors describe a design methodology to automatically generate a domain-specific coarse-grained array from a set of representative applications, and then to introduce limited forms of architectural generality to increase the likelihood that additional applications can be successfully mapped onto it.
