All-in-C Behavioral Synthesis And Verification

This paper presents the benefits of C language-based behavioral synthesis design methodology over traditional RTL-based methods for System LSI, or SoC designs. A comprehensive C-based tool flow, based on CyberWorkBench®, developed during the last twenty years at NEC’s R&D laboratories is introduced. This includes behavioral synthesis and formal verification and hardware-software co-simulatio... » read more
