We present combined temporal partitioning and design space exploration techniques for synthesizing behavioral specifications for run-time reconfigurable processors. Design space exploration involves selecting a design point for each task from a set of design points for that task to achieve latency minimization of partitioned solutions. We present an iterative search procedure that uses a core ILP (integer linear programming) technique, to obtain constraint satisfying solutions. The search procedure explores different regions of the design space while accomplishing combined partitioning and design space exploration. A case study of the DCT (discrete cosine transform) demonstrates the effectiveness of our approach.
