HIFSuite: Tools for HDL Code Conversion and Manipulation
EURASIP Journal on Embedded Systemsvolume 2010, Article number: 436328 (2010)
HIFSuite ia a set of tools and application programming interfaces (APIs) that provide support for modeling and verification of HW/SW systems. The core of HIFSuite is the HDL Intermediate Format (HIF) language upon which a set of front-end and back-end tools have been developed to allow the conversion of HDL code into HIF code and vice versa. HIFSuite allows designers to manipulate and integrate heterogeneous components implemented by using different hardware description languages (HDLs). Moreover, HIFSuite includes tools, which rely on HIF APIs, for manipulating HIF descriptions in order to support code abstraction/refinement and postrefinement verification.
