eXCite is a commercial HLS tool, developed by a company called Y explorations (spawned from UC Irvine) [website: http://www.yxi.com/]. The tool is known to work for all of the CHStone benchmarks, and results are discussed in the CHStone paper [accessible from: http://www.ertl.jp/chstone/].
eXCite / Cyclone II Implementation Results (July 5, 2010, updated: July 6, 2010, updated: July 7, 2010, updated: July 26, 2010)
|CIRCUIT||# LEs||# registers||# mem bits||# mults||Frequency (MHz)||Cycles||Notes|
IMPORTANT NOTE: All simulations were at 10 MHz, EXCEPT for AES which was at 25 MHz. http://www.eecg.utoronto.ca/~janders/eXCite_power/
The results for the “new” Quartus settings are at: http://www.eecg.utoronto.ca/~janders/eXCite_new_flow – note that we must use the old data for the jpeg benchmark, as it does not fit into the largest Cyclone II with the new settings. With the new settings, all circuits were simulated at 10 MHz (including AES).
