Abstract

In order to simulate large scale biological models with a reconfigurable FPGA-based biochemical simulator system, reduction of required resources are essential. This paper proposes a method which combines common terms in rate law functions appeared in biochemical models and generates a shared hardware module used for numerical integration. In this approach, two functions are combined in a tree structure level, followed by pipeline scheduling and arithmetic module binding. The evaluation result reveals that this approach reduces hardware resources by 31.4 % on average at the cost of 14.4 % throughput degradation.
