Abstract: In this paper, we present the famous temporal partitioning algorithms that temporally partition a data flow graph on reconfigurable systems. We have classified these algorithms into four classes: 1) whole latency optimisation algorithms; 2) whole communication cost optimisation algorithms; 3) whole area optimisation algorithms; 4) whole latency-communication cost optimisation algorithms. These algorithms can be used to solve the temporal partitioning problem at the behaviour level.

Keywords: temporal partitioning; reconfigurable architectures; FPGA engineering; field programmable gate arrays; VLSI applications; computer aided design; CAD; data flow graphs; latency optimisation; communication cost optimisation; area optimisation.
