- Introduction
- Related Work
- Polynomial transformation
- Common Subexpression elimination
- Results
- Conclusions

- Multiplications by constants encountered in many application areas
- DSP transforms in Audio, Video, Image processing (DFT, DCT, IDCT etc..)
- Filtering operations in Communication (FIR, IIR filters)
- Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems
- Polynomials in Computer graphics

- Multiplication is expensive in hardware
- Decompose constant multiplications into shifts and additions
- 13*X = (1101)2*X = X + X<<2 + X<<3

- Signed digits can reduce the number of additions/subtractions
- Canonical Signed Digits (CSD) (Knuth’74)
- (57)10 = (0110111)2 = (100-1001)CSD

- Further reduction possible by common subexpression elimination
- Upto 50% reduction (R.Hartley TCS’96)

- Common subexpressions
= common digit patterns

- F1 = 7*X = (0111)*X = X + X<<1 + X<<2
F2 = 13*X = (1101)*X = X + X<<2 + X<<3

- D1 = X + X<<2
F1 = D1 + X<<1

F2 = D1 + X<<3

- Good for single variable: FIR filters(transposed form)
- Multiple variable? (DFT, DCT etc..??)

- F1 = 7*X = (0111)*X = X + X<<1 + X<<2

“0101”

=> X + X<<2

- Simple Bipartite matching (Potkonjak et. al TCAD’95)
- (10101) and (01101) => common pattern = “101”
- (10010) and (010010) => cannot detect pattern “1001”

- Recursive Shift and Add (RESANDS) (H.Nguyen et. Al, TVLSI 2000)
- (10010) and (010010) => common pattern “1001”

- Exhaustive enumeration of all digit patterns (Pasko et. Al. TCAD’99)
- (1011) => “0011”, “1001”, “1010”, “0101”, “1011”

- Multiple Variable Common Subexpression elimination (A.Hosangadi et. al ASAP’04)
- Polynomial transformation of linear systems.
- Use rectangular covering methods
- Cannot find subexpressions with reversed signs
eg. (X1 – X2<<1) ≠ (X2<<1 – X1)

- Common occurrence when signed digits are used
- Rectangle covering has exponential complexity
- Method to overcome these limitations ?

- Algebraic methods in multi-level logic synthesis (MLLS)
- Reducing literal count in a set of Boolean expressions
- Factoring, decomposition: Established algebraic techniques
- Typically used for thousands of variables and literals

- Apply these methods to optimize linear systems?

D1 = X1+ X2<<2

Y1 = D1 + D1<<3 + X1<<3

Y2 = D1 + X2<<2

- View linear systems as set of arithmetic expressions
- Expressions consisting of +,-,<< operators
- Develop methodology for extracting common subexpressions

- Polynomial formulation

C × X = (±X×Li)

(14)10 × X = (1110)2 × X

= X<<3 + X<<2 + X<<1

= XL3 + XL2 + XL1

= (100-10)CSD × X = XL4 – XL1

- Concurrent Decomposition and Factorization of Boolean Expressions (J.Rajski et. al TCAD’92)
- Popular as Fast-Extract (Fx) algorithm
- Expression f = gh + r
- g = (ab + c) => Double cube divisor
- g = ab => Single cube divisor

- Fx algorithm for Linear systems?

- Obtained from every pair of terms in each expression
- Divide by the minimum exponent of L
- eg. F = X1 + X2L + X3L3
- { +X2L, +X3L3}: Divide by L => (X2+ X3L2)
- Divisors = (X1 + X2L), (X1 + X3L3), (X2 + X3L2)

- Divide by the minimum exponent of L
- Two divisors intersect if
- The terms involved are distinct
- (X1 – X2L)∩ (X1 - X2L) = φ
(X1 – X2L)∩ (-X1 + X2L) = φ (reversed signs allowed !!)

- Theorem: Multiple term common subexpression in set of expression iff non-overlapping intersection among two-term divisors
- Many divisors with intersections, which one to choose?
- Use greedy selection of divisor with most # of intersections

- Selecting divisors changes expressions
- Perform concurrent decomposition of expressions

- Creating set of divisors {Divisors};
{Divisors} = φ;

for each expression Pi

{

{Dnew} = Divisors for Pi;

{Divisors} = {Divisors}∩ {Dnew};

Update frequency statistics of {Divisors} ;
