Contribution à la prise en compte des contraintes des applications TDSI dans la synthèse de haut niveau

Abstract : This PhD thesis deals with the development of methodologies dedicated to System-on-Chip design. Our work aims at considering in the same time two ways of progress for the design of complex systems: reusing pre-designed hardware components (virtual components, so-called Intellectual Property) and High-Level Synthesis. The concept of behavioural level virtual components proposed by the LESTER laboratory provides flexibility and a good adequacy between the couple (algorithm specification, constraints) and the provided architectures. This kind of virtual component targets high-level synthesis tools. In this context, our work specifically addresses the algorithmic behaviour imposed by current Multimedia applications such as video and image processing
As in every real time application, undeterministic semantics contained by the behavioural specification (context or data dependant executions) involve theoretical and implementation problems linked to the application representation and its execution. On the one hand the graph model used to handle the application operations can reduce the number and the kind of the semantics accepted by the behavioural specification. On the other hand the high-level synthesis tool has to take into account the set of integration constraint of the designer.
We address in this work this problematic considering especially the representation model (graph model), the generic architectural model and the transformation set which make it possible to automate the high-level synthesis process.
