Title: HIGH-LEVEL SYNTHESIS DEVICE, HIGH-LEVEL SYNTHESIS METHOD, AND HIGH-LEVEL SYNTHESIS PROGRAM
Abstract:
According to the present invention, a configuration determination unit (112) acquires a behavioral description (511) describing behavior of a circuit and including a plurality of executable units, and determines, as a configuration candidate, a candidate for a circuit configuration that can implement the plurality of executable units. A determination unit (113) calculates, as circuit characteristics (522), the characteristics of the circuit assuming that the circuit has a configuration that is identical to the determined circuit configuration candidate for the plurality of executable units, and if the circuit characteristics (522) satisfy a threshold (521), then the determination unit (113) outputs the configuration candidate as a determined circuit configuration (310). A high-level synthesis unit (140) then performs high-level synthesis on the behavioral description (511) so that the resulting circuit configuration for the plurality of executable units is identical to the determined circuit configuration (310).
