Abstract

In recent years, as the complexity of signal processing systems increases, the needs for designers to mix up hardware-part and software-part grow more and more considering both performance and cost. There exist many algorithms in C for various Signal processing applications. We have to translate the algorithm in C to hardware description language(HDL), if portion of the algorithm needs to be implemented in hardware part of the system. For this translation, it`s difficult to handle dynamic memory allocation, function calls, pointer manipulation. This research shows a design method for a hardware model about recursive calls which was classified into software part of the system previously for the translation from C to VHDL. The benefits of having recursive calls in hardware structure can be quite high since provides flexibility in hardware/software partitioning in codesign system.
