Once the hardware–software partition has been defined, all the tasks assigned to the specific hardware (FPGA, ASIC) must be translated into circuit descriptions. Some important synthesis principles and methods are described in Chapter 10. The synthesis of arithmetic circuits, based on the algorithms of Chapters 48, is the topic of Chapters 1115, and an additional chapter (16) is dedicated to the implementation of floating-point arithmetic.
