Unconventional HDL synthesis experiments

Will it synthesize?

Pepijn de Vos

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!

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???
