Practical application of high-level synthesis in SoC designs
For years the industry has wanted to synthesize high-level code, such as SystemC, directly into a form usable in an RTL design flow. Until recently, that has been a dream except for a few specific types of blocks such as datapaths. But recent breakthroughs in synthesis algorithms and growing understanding of how to use SystemC to express a wider variety of structures are dissolving that limitation. In this Webinar we will describe and illustrate how to create SystemC code for synthesis, and how to analyze your high-level design, drive the new SystemC-to-RTL synthesis tools, and take the measures that will ensure the kind of netlist you want down-stream. It’s not just for datapaths any more.
Who should attend: Architects, logic designers, RTL synthesis users, design managers
