Design Optimization Example

DES

Abstract

Elsewhere in this book the basics of design optimization are discussed, but in general these are at an RTL level. The use of behavioral modeling has also been described, but in general the use of high-level behavioral synthesis is still rarely used in practice. In this chapter, the use of behavioral synthesis is investigated as an alternative to create optimal designs rather than using an RTL approach.

This chapter describes the experience of designing an example using a high level behavioral synthesis system.
