All-forms High-level Synthesis Summary

This is the same slide as before!

The major EDA companies, Synopsys, Cadance and Mentor all heavily pushing C-to-Gates flows.

Altera (Intel) and Xilinx, the FPGA vendors, are now also promoting HLS tools.

Many people remain highly skeptical, but with FPGA in the cloud as a service in 2017 onwards, a whole new user community is garnered.

Success of formal verification means abundance of formal specs for protocols and interfaces: automatic glue synthesis seems highly-feasible.

Synthesis from formal spec - academic interest only ? Except for glue logic.
