Abstract
The growing complexity and capability of programmable logic devices generates a need for languages, methodologies and tools that better support the projection of complex algorithms and applications into these highly parallel machines than traditional hardware design does. At Xilinx, we are working on tools that allow users to program FPGAs using a dataflow methodology. A key component is the translation of actors, written in a dataflow actor language such as CAL, into synthesizable RTL. In this talk I will discuss the architecture of that tool and discuss some details of its operation.
