Starting from an architecture and implementation independent specification of hardware/software communication protocols, we present a protocol synthesis method that generates a mixed hardware and software implementation. For the hardware part, the synthesis method will generate an application specific direct memory access (DMA) controller for each protocol specification. Software parts of the generated implementation are components for initialization, synchronization and communication with the… CONTINUE READING
