Méthodologie pour l'application industrielle de la synthèse comportementale

Abstract : Architectural Synthesis is subjected to intensive research since 1985. A few experiments have been carried out for 5 years. But its industrial application is very recent. The aim of this thesis is to specify the industrial constraints for architectural synthesis tools and to suggest an adapted design method in order to introduce behavioral synthesis in the industrial design flow. Industrial issues are due to the complexity of the circuits and to possible incompatibilities with the existing design environments. For the design of complex circuits, we present here a modular method based on architectural synthesis. We also specify the features required for a behavioral synthesis tool for its integration in the existent industrial design flow. We have carried out a promising experiment combining two complementary high level synthesis tools, revealing a reduction of the description length to the fifth, a reduction of the design time and a reasonnable area overhead of 5% comparing to the classical manual method results. However, the application of this method on a circuit more complex has shown the limitations of the architectural synthesis tools used in this thesis, by now. Design time gained by the automation of the architecture generation was lost in the integration of the tools in the existent industrial design flow.
