Release of SPARK C-to-VHDL Parallelizing HLS Tool Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

We are pleased to announce the release of the SPARK parallelizing high-level
synthesis software tool developed at the Center for Embedded Computer Systems.
SPARK takes the behavior of an application specified in C as input
(with some restrictions) and produces register-transfer level (RTL) VHDL.
SPARK employs several parallelizing compiler, compiler, and high-level
synthesis transformations to generate a scheduled, resource bound data
path along with a FSM controller. We have benchmarked SPARK on a range
of multimedia and image processing designs and also a case study with
an Intel design.

This page has SPARK binaries for Solaris and Linux platforms, a User Manual,
and a Tutorial with a MPEG-1 player as an example.

See publications on the SPARK webpage for more details on our work:
