Transformation of Algorithmic Simulation Vector Sets for Automatic Reuse at RT Level,Cordula Hansen,Martin Pröfrock,Wolfgang Rosenstiel In the high-level synthesis (HLS) domain, more and more often the simulation vectors are specified on algorithmic level focussing on functional behavior. Due to the HLS and the inherent changes of the cycle-by-cycle behavior, simulation vector sets specifying synchronous behavior can not be reused on (RT) level. The timing behavior as well as the order of the read and write operations of the interface signals (I/O operations) have to be considered in the simulation vector set on RTL. Therefore, this paper presents a new approach for transforming algorithmic simulation vector sets for an automatic reuse at RT level1 .I n this approach, the constraints set by the used HLS system as well as different design styles are considered. A …The number of simulation passes can simply be computed by dividing the number of I/O operations of the SVS by the number of I/O operations of the specification [ Source.
