How to design such a system that costs lower without compromising its functionality is always an important topic.
In this paper, we focus on code size compression for embedded system. We pick the so called 「ECHO algorithm」 to be our compression scheme and make enhancement on it. Such an enhancement is achieved by combining different 「ECHO Instruction configurations」 to make improvement. Although the proposed method isn’t too complex, it does achieve a very good compression ratio under our experiment.
Besides the algorithm, this paper makes further consideration about how to adapt the proposal to real world application. By leveraging existed MIPS architecture, and exploring the unused instruction patterns, the modified MIPS instruction set should be able to recognize those new added “compressed” instructions. Even the possible hardware implementation is briefly discussed.
Furthermore, this paper also proposes using “post-compilation” process, which analyze and produce the compressed image after normal compilation flow. This means that the original MIPS tool chain can still be reused without further change.
