This book has presented a wide range of aspects regarding the application of compiler methodologies to embedded processor systems. Retargetable compilation techniques have been shown to be an important design technology for the constraints of today’s embedded architectures. To begin, an evolution of embedded processor architectures was presented, showing the application pull on the characteristics of instruction-set architectures. It is recognized that real-time constraints put significant demands on the performance of embedded processors such as DSPs. This is manifested in RISC, pipelined, and VLIW principles for architectures with specialized functional units and register structures.
