module selection is the process of choosing the types of modules (e.g. carry-look-ahead adder) to implement each operation (e.g. addition). The authors give a limited solution to the module selection problem for pipelined designs. A model for estimating area-time tradeoffs for pipelined designs is used to formulate the problem, and an overview of the solution technique is given. Complexities introduced by nonoptimal designs and user constraints are addressed. The results have been validated using designs generated by an automated pipeline synthesis program.
