Catapult is the industry’s first HLS tool that helps designers target power as an optimization goal. Leveraging PowerPro®’s best-in-class power analysis and optimization technology embedded inside of the HLS process, along with unique HLS optimizations, Catapult delivers the low power RTL you need.
Catapult accelerates exploring different architecture tradeoffs and measures the power, performance and area for each HLS solution. Catapult automatically performs fine grained power-saving optimizations aimed at minimizing switching activity in the RTL to deliver the greatest power savings.
Using the HLS testbench configuration already used for Verification, Catapult automatically drives simulation of generated RTL solutions. Captured switching data and technology library enable the embedded PowerPro engine to give designers rapid feedback on the approximate power cost of HLS blocks, enabling exploration and architectural optimization.
With the deep sequential analysis capability of PowerPro, Catapult first-pass optimizations are refined for power reduction across the entire design. Enhancements to the RTL are based on observability and stability analysis using testbench switching activity to guide the value of the optimization. Formal verification of RTL to optimized RTL is available.
