Bluespec has announced its new Accelerate-HLS tool supports Siemens’ Catapult™ software for high-level synthesis and Bluespec RISC-V cores with coherent physical memory.
Bluespec, Inc. unveiled its new Accelerate-HLS tool that simplifies and speeds the development of hardware using High-Level Synthesis (HLS) by offloading complex functionality that RISC-V processors can more effectively implement. Memory management—including address translation, coherence, and protection—is a complex, performance-critical requirement that is outside the expertise of the average designer and problematic for HLS designs. Accelerate-HLS eliminates this problem by providing HLS designs with direct access to proven, high-performance memory management that is standard fare in modern RISC-V processors.
