Unconventional HDL synthesis experiments
2020-12-29, 18:00–18:40 (Europe/Berlin), rC2

Most synthesis goes from hardware description languages to FPGA bitstreams or ASIC designs, but what else can you do? In this talk I will demonstrate some more unconventional flows to inspire you about all the amazing experiments that are enabled by open source tools!

Will it synthesize?
After a short intro about the open source FPGA ecosystem, I will introduce a project by Dan Ravensloft and myself that synthesizes HDL to 74xx logic chips. Then I will cover a project of mine that synthesizes spreadsheets to HDL. And from there to 74xx logic???
