An Automatic Translation of CSP to Handel-C

Authors: Phillips, Jonathan D., Stiles, G. S.


We present tools that convert a subset of CSP into Handel-C code. Handel-C is similar to the standard C programming language, and can be itself converted to produce files to program an FPGA. We thus now have a process that can directly generate hardware from a verified high-level description. The CSP to Handel-C translator makes use of the Lex and Yacc programming tools. The Handel-C code produced is functional, but not necessarily optimized for all situations. The translator has been tested using several CSP scripts of varying complexity. The functionality of the resulting Handel-C programs has been verified with simulations, and two scripts were further checked with successful implementations on an FPGA.
