Hardware performance analysis using the Critical Path

Theory and practice for performance analysis of concurrent hardware.


The Dynamic Critical Path is the longest chain of events in the timed-graph. (The timed graph models the time-evolution of a circuit.) Analyzing the critical path can offer important insights about the bottlenecks of a circuit. We have built automatic tools which extract, summarize, analyze the critical path, and use it to optimize circuits.
