Data compression is a common requirement for displaying large amounts of information. The goal is to reduce visual clutter. The approach given in this paper uses an analysis of a data set to construct a visual representation. The visualization is compressed using the address ranges of the memory structure. This method produces a compressed version of the initial visualization, retaining the same information as the original. The presented method has been implemented as a Memory Designer tool for ASIC, FPGA and embedded systems using IP-XACT. The Memory Designer is a user-friendly tool for model based embedded system design, providing access and adjustment of the memory layout from a single view, complementing the 'programmer's view' to the system.
