It is assumed in HLS algorithms that a component library containing various implementations of elementary circuit components is available. An open problem is how to construct such a component library in the context of approximate computing, where the component's error is a new design variable and hence many compromise implementations exist for a given component. In this paper, we first introduce a multi-objective Cartesian genetic programming method to create a comprehensive component library containing hundreds of Pareto optimal implementations of approximate 8-bit adders and multipliers, where the error, area and delay are simultaneously optimised. Another multi-objective evolutionary algorithm is employed to solve the so called binding problem of HLS, in which suitable approximate components are assigned to nodes of the data flow graph describing a complex digital circuit. Two approaches are then proposed and compared in order to reduce the size of the library of approximate components. It is shown that a random sub-sampling of the component library provides satisfactory results in the context of our study. The proposed methods are evaluated using two benchmark circuits - the reduce (sum) and DCT circuits.", keywords = "genetic algorithms, genetic programming, cartesian genetic programming", DOI = "doi:10.1109/SSCI.2016.7850168", month = dec, notes = "Also known as \cite{7850168}", }
