Compilation Techniques and Tools for Embedded Processor Architectures

  • Clifford Liem
  • Pierre Paulin


Compiler technology and firmware development tools are becoming a key differentiator in the design of embedded processor-based systems. This chapter presents a look at trends in embedded processor architectures. Highperformance applications such as multimedia, wireless communications, and telecommunications require new design methodologies. The key trend in embedded CPUs is the Application Specific Instruction-Set Architecture or ASIP—a processor designed for a particular application or family of applications.
