Automatic Hardware Synthesis from Specifications: A Case Study

Roderick Bloem, Stefan Galler, Barbara Jobstmann, Nir Piterman, Amir Pnueli, Martin Weiglhofer
2007 2007 Design, Automation & Test in Europe Conference & Exhibition  
The idea of automatic synthesis from specifications is old, but used to be completely impractical. Recently, great strides towards efficient synthesis from specifications have been made.  ...  We propose to use a formal specification language as a high-level hardware description language.  ...  We are grateful to Karin Greimel and Milan Milinkovic for their help with the implementation and to Margaret Rugira, Chris Styles and Colin Campbell at ARM for their help with understanding the specification  ...

Automatic Formal Synthesis of Hardware from Higher Order Logic

Mike Gordon, Juliano Iyoda, Scott Owens, Konrad Slind
2006 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Introduction Our goal is to synthesise correct-by-construction hardware directly from mathematical specifications in higher order logic (HOL [5]).  ...  The 'synthesisable subset' of HOL is not intended to be fixed, but to grow as we do case studies. The compiler currently generates hardware to implement tail-recursive function definitions.  ...  Acknowledgements David Greaves gave us advice on the hardware implementation of handshake protocols and also helped us understand the results of simulating circuits produced by our compiler.  ...

A design process of musical interface "PocoPoco": An interactive artwork case study

Yuya Kikukawa, Toshiki Yoshiike, Tatsuhiko Suzuki, Takaharu Kanai, Tetsuaki Baba, Kumiko Kushiyama
2013 International Journal of Asia Digital Art and Design Association  
In this paper we present a design process of PocoPoco, explaining actual problems and solutions. Then we discuss the process to design a artistic and practical interface.  ...  From the beginning to the time when a professional artist used it for live performance, we were confronted with many problems and had to solve them.  ...  Though in the case of the prototype we used plywood for the casing, since this improvement we have used the casing consists from ABS resin. We designed 3D models and made them using a 3D printer.  ...

2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we carried out a design study to assess the effectiveness of applying Vivado-HLS in structural design.  ...  Interestingly, we find that describing a complete NoC comprising router submodules faces fundamental difficulties not present in describing the routers as standalone modules.  ...  In mapping C code to a datapath, Vivado-HLS can automatically make default implementation choices where the C specification is silent.  ...
