LegUp : High-Level Synthesis for FPGA-Based Processor / Accelerator Systems

  title={LegUp : High-Level Synthesis for FPGA-Based Processor / Accelerator Systems},
  • Published 2010
It is generally accepted that a custom hardware implementation of a set of computations will provide superior speed and energy-efficiency relative to a software implementation. However, the cost and difficulty of hardware design is often prohibitive, and consequently, a software approach is used for most applications. In this paper, we introduce a new high-level synthesis tool called LegUp that allows software techniques to be used for hardware design. LegUp accepts a standard C program as… CONTINUE READING
