Vivado HLS: Generating RTL without IPs

Hi,

   I would like to know if its possible for VivadoHLS to generate a technology independent RTL. Right now, the RTL contains encrypted IPs which prevent analysis of the RTL by other tools to determine the quality of the solition.  Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Reese

Re: Vivado HLS: Generating RTL without IPs

It would nt be possible directly as there are few functions which you may use in HLS which goes back and gets implemented in Vivado IP
s like expf function or complex adders etc. The IP files would be encrypted but we have a flow to work it out. The best thing would be to add the generated files in a Vivado project along with the IP files (.xci). Once you do that follow Chapter -5 :http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2013_3/ug896-vivado-ip.pdf

If in case you are new to HLS, do run the Tutorial: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2013_3/ug871-vivado-high-level-synthesis-tutorial.pdf

Debraj
