High level synthesis Support Service Cedar™-HLS

High level synthesis Support Service Cedar™-HLS

Cedar™-HLS is a service for mapping from a high-level language (C/SystemC) to our technology. This service reduces the cost and work period for our customers.

Benefits of high level synthesis

  • Reduced development period: the amount of description is reduced by one tenth and the verification time are reduced by one third (based on our results)
  • Reusing of sources: the efficiency of development can be improved (ease of changing devices/technologies)
  • Ease of evaluation: performance and footprint (cost) can easily be optimized using parameters

Example applications of Cedar™-HLS

Optimal source code tuning for custom SoCs (source code rewriting)
Confirmation of high level synthesis results and integrity by performing RTL logic synthesis
