SystemCrafter SC is software tool that synthesizes SystemC automatically to VHDL/Verilog description hardware. Engineers and programmers can design, debug and simulate hardware and systems using their existing C++ development environment. SystemCrafter SC facilitates to simulate hardware and software in same framework. Designers can synthesize SystemC to RTL for implementation using a standard VHDL/Verilog design flow. SystemCrafter SC also writes a structural SystemC description of the synthesized circuit for verification.
Target users of SystemCrafter SC :
SystemCrafter SC is suitable for programmers, scientists, systems engineers and hardware engineers. It enables developing hardware to be viewed as a higher level activity than writing an HDL, and allows the user to focus on the algorithm, rather than the details of the implementation.
SystemCrafter SC: Design Flow
SystemCrafter SC design flow automates the process of synthesizing SystemC to RTL VHDL/Verilog. It will also generate a SystemC description of the synthesized circuit, which can be used to verify the synthesized code using your existing test harness.
SystemCrafter SC gives the designer control of the critical steps of scheduling (clock cycle allocation) and allocation (hardware reuse). Thus, the results are always predictable, controllable and match the designer's expectations.
SystemCrafter SC allows you to develop, refine, debug and synthesize hardware and systems within your existing C++ compiler's development environment. You can run fast, executable SystemC specifications to verify your design. You can configure your compiler so that SystemCrafter SC is automatically run when you specify that you want to generate hardware. There is no new GUI to learn.
Using SystemC and SystemCrafter, you can easily develop hardware coprocessing and software acceleration units. Using FPGA hardware with SystemC flows enables powerful new computing applications and domains.
You can use your existing C++ compiler to develop a SystemC description of your application, and experiment with implementing parts of the code in different coprocessors and hardware accelerators. You can use your compiler's facilities to profile candidate architectures, and simulate the whole system. Then SystemCrafter will automatically produce RTL VHDL/Verilog descriptions of the hardware, which you can implement in your Xilinx FPGA.
