Adaptive Pipelining

Automatic pipeline insertion based on the target device, target frequency, and multiplier word-lengths.

Clock-Rate Pipelining

Pipeline registers insertion at the faster clock rate instead of the slower data rate.

Distributed Pipelining

Definition, benefits, and costs of distributed pipelining

Hierarchical Distributed Pipelining

Hierarchical distributed pipelining extends the scope of distributed pipelining by moving delays across hierarchical boundaries within a subsystem while preserving subsystem hierarchy.
