Behavioral Synthesis — An Introduction
Behavioral synthesis has been widely touted as the next major step in design automation after logic synthesis. Several behavioral synthesis tools are commercially available. However, a large percentage of logic designers still follow schematic capture based design methodology. This clearly raises some extremely pertinent issues. Are behavioral synthesis tools ahead of their times? Are these tools easy to use? How do these tools fit into the ASIC design flow? Is there a growing user base for these tools? And most importantly, do you need behavioral synthesis?
