As designers may model mixed hardware-software systems using a subset of or ++, we present SpC, a solution to synthesize and optimize hardware models with pointers. In hardware, a pointer is not only the address of data in memory, but it may also reference data mapped to registers, ports, or wires. Pointer analysis is used to find the set of locations each pointer may reference in a program at compile time. In this paper, we address the problem of synthesizing and optimizing pointers todoi:10.1109/43.908442 fatcat:5zzc67vfsjdfnbgkrrpi647fpi
