PandA about

The primary objective of the PandA project is to develop a usable framework that will enable the research of new ideas in the HW-SW Co-Design field.

The PandA framework includes methodologies supporting the research on high-level synthesis of hardware accelerators, on parallelism extraction for embedded systems, on hardware/software partitioning and mapping, on metrics for performance estimation of embedded software applications and on dynamic reconfigurable devices.

PandA is free software, free in the sense that it respects the user’s freedom, released under the GNU General Public License version 3 and being developed at Politecnico di Milano (Italy).

The source files currently distributed mainly cover the high-level synthesis of C based descriptions and are available for download through this link.
