Designs for five architectures are presented in this chapter to illustrate the range of capabilities of the synthesis tools in the Workbench. The designs, summarized in Table 8–1, are listed in order of increasing complexity. The first 4 architectures, the Elliptical Filter, the Kalman Filter, the BTL310, and the MCS6502 were synthesized using various design exploration options in the general synthesis path. The last two architectures, the MCS6502 and the Motorola 68000 are both microprocessors. The MCS6502 was synthesized through both the general and style specific paths. The 68000 is too big for the general path, but a portion of its capabilities was synthesized by SUGAR.
