Abstract

HW components are synthesized as standard or custom processors or as special custom hardware units which are also called intellectual property components (IPs). As we explained in the previous chapter the synthesis process starts with speci_cation (usually an instruction set or C code) and ends with a RTL code in an HDL that is ready for further processing with RTL tools. This synthesis process is sometimes called C-to-RTL design.
