Hardware acceleration using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) has become increasingly popular for computationally intensive Digital Signal Processing (DSP) applications. Unfortunately, while FPGAs have a reasonably tractable Computer Aided Design (CAD) flow and performance, they have poor power characteristics when compared to direct Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) fabrication. ASICs exhibit better performance and power than FPGAs, but require complex CAD and large Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) costs.
