A Compiler Infrastructure for Accelerator Generators
Calyx is an intermediate language and infrastructure for building compilers that generate custom hardware accelerators.
See the Calyx website, language documentation and the documentation for the source code for more information. Calyx's design is based on our paper.
If you want to try out the compiler, install it using
cargo install futil
This will install the
futil binary which includes the calyx frontend,
optimization passes, and several backends.
Follow the getting started instructions.
This repository contains the source code for the following:
calyx/): The intermediate representation used for hardware accelerator generation.
src/): The compiler infrastructure for compiling Calyx programs. If
calyxis like LLVM, then
- Calyx debugger (
interp/): An interpreter and debugger for Calyx.
fud, The Calyx driver: Utility tool that wraps various hardware toolchains.
