In the design of embedded systems, hardware and software need to be co-explored together to meet targets of performance and energy. With the use of application-specific instruction-set processors, as a stand-alone solution or as a part of a system on chip, the customization of processors for a particular application is a known method to reduce energy requirements and provide performance. In particular, processor designs with exposed data paths trade compile time complexity for simplified control hardware and lower running costs. An exposed data path also allows the removal of unused components of interconnection network, once the application is compiled.
