PuMA++: from behavioral specification to multi-FPGA-prototype. In this paper we present a new design flow for efficient hardware implementation of behavioral system specifications at algorithmic level into heterogeneous multi-FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Arrays) rapid prototyping systems. We discuss the benefits of coupling the high-level synthesis tool CADDY-II and the partitioning and mapping environment PuMA, which is designed for optimized implementation of RT-level (Register-Transfer) netlists into multi-FPGA architectures. With our new approach, rapid prototyping and in-circuit verification in earliest design phases are enabled. Due to short implementation times and precise back annotation accomplished by a close coupling of the tools, more design iterations and thus better design space exploration is possible.
