In order to keep your HDL code technology independent, a good synthesis tool must offer an automatic inferring (recognizing) capability. In addition to enabling FPGA designers to freely target a different technology, Precision Synthesis also provides optimal quality of results (QoR) based on heuristic algorithms. In terms of writing RTL behavior for RAM storage hardware, this paper shows how you can either specifically instantiate certain technology cells or let Precision Synthesis automatically infer RAMs from your intent HDL source code.
