Pushing the Capabilities of Compiler Methodologies in Industry

  • Clifford Liem


For DSPs and ASIPs of many types, assembly level programming is common place; and therefore, experiences with compilation methodologies is an important step for the general acceptance of embedded software tools for specialized architectures. This chapter presents industrial experiences in three different projects using the two compiler systems described in Chapter 3. In each section, the architectures and compiler environments are presented followed by a discussion of the results and lessons learned. These lessons also include many of the practical issues discussed in Chapter 4. Following, experimental results of the DSP address generation approach of Chapter 5 are presented. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the main principles of each compiler approach.
