High-Level Synthesis (HLS) extends the traditional design flow, providing a new and powerful approach to hardware design. It is important to understand the fundamentals of HLS and how HLS bridges the gap between the RTL designer and architect, and functional verification and RTL verification. This webinar will provide an introduction to HLS and how an abstract, untimed algorithm representation is prepared for HLS, then transformed and optimized for power, performance and area by Catapult, resulting in high-quality RTL. Additionally, this webinar will introduce changes to the verification methodology that complement an HLS flow.
