Abstract Hardware modules would be much easier to reuse if they supported generic flexible high-level interfaces. However, these interfaces are rarely used since they lead to timing and area overheads compared to a customized design. This paper describes a reachability analysis framework that identifies over-provisioning in instances of flexible design, and offers a technique for annotating this information so that modern synthesis tools can remove most of the overhead. Results are demonstrated on a variety of flexible structures, including functional blocks, programmable state machines, and latency-insensitive interfaces.
