Smart Move: A Placement-Aware Retiming and Replication Method for Field Programmable Gate Arrays
In this paper, a register smart move method performing placement-aware retiming and replication for sequential circuits implemented in field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is presented. This method integrates two major register move operations with circuit functionality unchanged. Experiments show that the smart move method proposed in this paper can effectively reduce the path delay, achieving 13.54% in average of the maximum frequency for sequential circuits implemented in FPGAs.
