While FPGA manufacturers’ tool suites offer a quick and effective way to target an existing starter board, the flow does not necessarily provide the most optimal or familiar tools for the designer of a custom hardware platform. By following the straight-forward guidelines provided in this paper, Precision Synthesis can successfully be used to synthesize MicroBlaze subsystems for a more familiar tool flow.
