1.can anyone tell what is the difference between behavioural synthesis and logic synthesis.
2.whether we can use synplify pro for both synthesis methods
3.advantages and disadvantages of both
4.any example if possible

Re: difference between behavioual synthesis and logic synthe

Brief answers:

Behavioral synthesis transforms algorithmic behavioral descriptions into FSMD (finite state machine with datapath) structural descriptions. Logic synthesis transforms FSMDs into transistor level technology dependent (usually) netlists. Synplify, Leonardo, DC and the rest perform logic synthesis. CatapultC, BC, Celoxica (to name just a few) perform behavioral synthesis. Logic synthesis is more mature while behavioral synthesis has still a big obstacle to overcome, the fact that designers are not used in describing their designs in higher abstraction levels and letting automated transformations act uninterrupted.

For more details, see the above sources!
