Sehwa: a software package for synthesis of pipelines from behavioral specification. A set of techniques for the synthesis of pipelined data paths is described, and Sehwa, a program that performs such synthesis, is presented. The task includes the generation of data paths from a data-flow graph along with a clocking scheme that overlaps execution of multiple tasks. Some design examples are given. Sehwa can find the minimum-cost design, the highest performance design, and other designs between these two in the design space. Sehwa is written in Franz Lisp and executes within minutes, for problems of practical size, on a VAX 11/750

This software is also peer reviewed by journal TOMS.
