High Level Synthesis using CoSy

From Razvan Nane's dissertation about Automatic Hardware Generation for Reconfigurable Architectures:

"Dissimilar to previous HLS compilers, DWARV 3.0 is based on the CoSy compiler framework. As a result, this allowed us to build a highly modular and extendible compiler in which standard or custom optimizations can be easily integrated. The compiler is designed to accept a large subset of C-code as input and to generate synthesizable VHDL code for unrestricted application domains."
