HIDE+: A Logic Based Hardware Development Environment
With the advent of System-On-Chip (SOC) technology, there is a pressing need to enhance the quality of ools available and increase the level of abstraction at which hardware is designed, implemented and programmed. This would reduce the gap between what is currently achievable technologically, and what hardware engineers are capable to produce given time to market constraints. Hardware development should hence become easier and less time consuming, without scarifying the implementation efficiency. Towards this goal, we present in this paper a simple structural high-level hardware language called HIDE+, particularly suitable for the rapid generation of highly parameterised, and highly efficient, hardware cores. We detail the syntax and semantics of HIDE+ and illustrate how highly scaleable, parameterised and optimised architectures can be described and automatically generated from it, using a small set of constructors. HIDE+ offers a e abstract way of describing hardware than is possibl...
