hdl compiler

First i won't called them COMPILERS ..They are HDL code synthetizers .A lot has to be INFERED from a piece of code .A compiler just replaces equivalent control structures. Here parallel structures have to be infered from sequential ones .

I use catapult .This is a very sofisticated program .Unfurtunatly is very expensive .So i only have an early version .But After a short learning curve i'm able to synthetize complex algorithms . I 'm working on a Guruswami Sudan algorithm .And there is a section called RothRuckenstein factorizer .Well this is easly written in c in a Recurrent form . But Catapult is not able to synthetize recurrent structures .SO I'M IN TROUBLE!

c hdl compiler

Hi

Two problems

1. My answer to your question
the best is "Catapult C"
2. You must consider systemcC to HDL and matlab to HDL too. If you are interested I may give more details and guidance.

tnx

As far as I experienced there is not any perfect tool in the market and some genesis don't like idea to use c to hdl

Thanks
