Performance Optimization with Conditional Instructions

  • Rainer Leupers


The techniques presented in the previous chapters are strongly machine-dependent, since they are based on knowledge of the detailed data path architectures of embedded processors. In contrast, this chapter describes a largely machine-independent code optimization technique, which primarily works on the intermediate representation (IR) level of the compilation flow (fig. 6.1).
