Abstract :

Growing needs in terms of latency, throughput and flexibility are driving the architectures of tomorrow's Radio
Access Networks towards more centralized configurations that rely on cloud-computing paradigms. In these new
architectures, digital signals are processed on a large variety of hardware units (e.g., CPUs, Field Programmable
Gate Arrays, Graphical Processing Units). Optimizing model compilers that target these architectures must rely on
efficient analysis techniques to optimally generate software for signal-processing applications.

In this paper, we present a blocking combination of the iterative and worklist algorithms to perform static
data-flow analysis on functional views denoted with UML Activity and SysML Block diagrams. We demonstrate the
effectiveness of the blocking mechanism with reaching definition analysis of UML/SysML models for a 5G channel decoder
(receiver side) and a Software Defined Radio system. We show that significant reductions in the number of
unnecessary visits of the models' control-flow graphs are achieved, with respect to a non-blocking combination of
the iterative and worklist algorithms.
