Abstract

Application-specific instruction set processors used in embedded systems are highly optimized for given task. In this kind of processors a specific application runs. Therefore, a designer should have a tool which helps him or her in the task of processor and application optimization. This tool is called profiler. It can discover problematic parts, such as bottleneck points, in the processor and application design. Then, the designer can easily find which parts of the processor or application should be modified, so that performance gets better or power-consumption is reduced. In this paper, a way how to generate cycle-accurate profiler for C language from a processor model described with an architecture description language is proposed.
