BIF : a behavioral intermediate format for high level synthesis


This report describes a new intermediate format for behavioral synthesis systems, based on annotated state tables. It supports user control of the synthesis process by allowing specification of partial design structures, user-bindings and user modification of compiled designs. It is a simple and uniform representation that can be used as an intermediate exchange format for various behavioral synthesis tools. The format captures synchronous and asynchronous behavior, and serves as a good interface to the user by linking behavior and structure at each level of abstraction in the behavioral synthesis process.
