The authors present a novel decomposition of the high-level data-path synthesis problem taking as input scheduled procedural behavior and outputting geometrically placed and optimized linear data-paths. The technique uses communication based analysis to allow simultaneous synthesis of the placement, bindings, and RTL topology for high performance linear data-paths. In effect, the procedure creates an architecture and a layout with specified performance and cost constraints.<
