Abstract
In this paper, we investigate three different realizations
of the same block from different points of view. The mentioned
different realizations include two realizations with
embedded processors (custom 16-bit RISC processor and
general soft-core processor) and the third realization uses
Handel-C as an example of synthesisable high-level abstraction
languages.
The results show that development time of complete
solution (HW and SW) is approximately the same for the
Handel-C design and the design with soft-core processor;
the development time of the Custom 16-bit RISC processor
is about five times higher. Moreover, the throughput of the
Handel-C design measured in the number of bits processed
in one second is the highest. The obtained frequency and
occupied area of the Handel-C design depends on the complexity
of the used program. However, results are comparable
or even better than results of the embedded processors.
