Interconnect-aware binding

By estimating interconnect power during high-level synthesis and including it in the cost function, one can indirectly optimize interconnect power. This is not enough. In this section, we propose explicit methods to make binding interconnect-aware to accelerate and improve the design space exploration. The overall high-level synthesis flow is presented in Section VI.
