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.
The source files currently distributed mainly cover the high-level synthesis of C based descriptions.
Patches and pull request could be submitted at GitHub while stable releases are available for download through this link.
