Abstract

The four previous chapters describe one approach to Algorithmic and Register-Transfer level synthesis. In contrast to these four separate design tools that work together, the SUGAR microprocessor synthesis tool combines elements of each of these tools. This chapter will highlight three issues in register-transfer synthesis by discussing how the organization of SUGAR differs from the previous approach. The issues are: how to handle interactions between the design steps and substeps in algorithmic and register-transfer level synthesis, the differences between style-specific and general-purpose synthesis methods, and the role of knowledge representation methods.
