Abstract
The goal of the paper is to optimize the PISA architecture for the ONU Auto-discovery process. This Auto-discovery process has been written in C language following the IEEE 802.3ah MPCP standard. Using SimpleScalar [3] simulation tool, the architecture profile is evaluated in order to decide the range of the design exploration. Then, using Wattch [1] and CACTI [2] simulation tools the CPI, average power consumed and cache area are calculated for each design point, the cost function is defined and evaluated for each design point using greedy strategy. The Auto-discovery process has been written in VHDL and using Synopys power compiler [4] the power consumption has been calculated and then we compared between the VHDL implementation and the PISA architecture from the power consumption point of view.
