This paper discusses issues in benchmarking for synthesis, and suggests techniques for the comparison of benchmark descriptions, the synthesis tools used, as well as the synthesized designs finally generated. We propose a classification scheme for the assumptions made for the comparison of different synthesis tools, and present an Assumptions Chart that can be used to visualize different benchmarks, tools and synthesis results. We illustrate application of this Assumptions Chart using synthesis experiments that were conducted on some sample High-Level Synthesis Workshop bench-marks.
