Coarse Grain Reconfigurable Arrays (CGRAs) are promising accelerators capable of achieving high performance at low power consumption. While CGRAs can efficiently accelerate loop kernels, accelerating loops with control flow (loops with if-then-else structures) is quite challenging. Techniques that handle control flow execution in CGRAs generally use predication. Such techniques execute both branches of an if-then-else structure and select outcome of either branch to commit based on the result of the conditional. This results in poor utilization of CGRA s computational resources. Dual-issue scheme which is the state of the art technique for control flow fetches instructions from both paths of …
