Over the years, the semiconductor industry has been using C/C++ high-level synthesis (HLS) tools as one way to address the complexity of implementation and verification of hardware acceleration cores due to the growing complexity of standards in video, imaging, wireless, and other multimedia and communications applications. However, these challenges have limited the adoption and scalability of these tools. This paper will discuss some of these challenges and introduce Synphony C Compiler (SCC), a new high-level synthesis product from Synopsys that includes some unique and effective technologies that address the challenges in high-level synthesis adoption.
