Data paths are collections of arithmetic elements, buses, registers and multiplexers that usually account for roughly 80 percent of the area of a complex chip. Unfortunately, gate-level synthesis does not work well for these elements. Data-path synthesis solves this problem by keeping the design at a conceptually higher level than gate-level synthesis, thus allowing much larger designs.
