A Survey of High-Level Synthesis Systems by Robert A. Walker, Raul Camposano

By Robert A. Walker, Raul Camposano

After lengthy years of labor that experience visible little commercial software, high-level synthesis is eventually at the verge of changing into a realistic instrument. The country of high-level synthesis this present day is the same to the kingdom of common sense synthesis ten years in the past. at the present, logic-synthesis instruments are general in electronic method layout. sooner or later, high-level synthesis will play a key function in getting to know layout complexity and in really exploiting the possibility of ASIes and PLDs, which call for super brief layout cycles. paintings on high-level synthesis begun over 20 years in the past. seeing that large development has been made in realizing the fundamental then, difficulties concerned, even if no unmarried universally-accepted theoretical framework has but emerged. there's a transforming into variety of courses dedicated to high-level synthesis, really good workshops are held on a regular basis, and tutorials at the subject are mostly held at significant meetings. This ebook provides an in depth survey of the study and improvement in high-level synthesis. partially I, a quick educational explains the fundamental techniques utilized in high-level synthesis, and follows an instance layout through the synthesis method. partly II, present high-level synthesis structures are surveyed.

The swarm diversity of f3 Fig. 4. 8. The vertical axis is the common log of the average extremum and the horizontal axis is corresponding iterations. To avoid function value being zero, 10-11 was added to each value as the final values. It can be seen from the illustrations that the best average optimization result of all functions is gained when the algorithm is without GO (S3), while the worst is gained when the algorithm is without RO (S4). In general, the order of the average optimization result of all control strategies from high to low is: S3, S2, S1, S4.
