Hardware/Software Codesign Environment
GEZEL is a cycle-based hardware description language based
on the Finite-State-Machine + Datapath (FSMD) model. The GEZEL
tools offer stand-alone simulation, cosimulation, and
code-generation into synthesizable (VHDL) code. Through
user-defined library-block extensions in C++, new cosimulation
interfaces can be added. GEZEL is open-source.
- Cycle-based hardware simulation engine.
- Scripted environment with easy-to-learn hardware description language.
- Cosimulation with embedded cores, such as ARM, 8051, AVR.
- Code generator for synthesizable VHDL code.
