This hierarchical system automatically designs highly customized multicluster processors. In the first of two tightly coupled components, design space exploration heuristically searches the basic capabilities that define the processor's overall parallelism. In the second, a hardware compiler determines the detailed architecture configuration that realizes the parallelism.
