The authors present a novel algorithm for area minimisation in digital signal processing ASIC design. After determining the optimised fixed point representation for each signal, the proposed algorithm divides abstract operations in design description into partitions so that operations in the same partition can share a hardware module. Experimental results show the efficacy of the proposed algorithm by generating the DSP hardwares requiring smaller area under given performance constraints.
