May 25, 2009 -- High-Level Synthesis (HLS) technology and tools are used to transform high-level behavioral model written in C, to synthesizable hardware in RTL . We have evaluated one such commercial HLS tool to create JPEG encoder RTL straight from C algorithm within a very short design time. This paper discusses the steps involved in automatic "algorithm-to-RTL" transformation and compares the results with RTL developed using traditional method.
