Reconfigurable architectures are increasingly being used for digital signal
processing applications. The typical development process for DSP applications
starts with a set of mathematical equations which are manipulated and
interpreted by the developer, and then manually translated into a lower
abstraction level. The developer must consider many different implementation
approaches and parameters in order to obtain the best trade-offs for the
given application on the target architecture.
The exploration of different approaches and implementation alternatives is
a very complex, time consuming and error-prone process which requires a lot
of expertise from the developer. To address this problem, a novel tool flow
based on rewriting logic is being developed.
The talk presents the toolflow and some applications examples.
