CHIPS

Chips is a Python library for designing hardware devices.

FEATURES

  • High level device modeling language makes device design simpler and more powerful.
  • Provides fast native simulations that integrate with Python.
  • Python extension modules such as Scipy, Numpy, Matplotlib and PIL provide a rich verification environment.
  • Automatic generation of synthesizable VHDL.
  • Plugin mechanism also allows C++ and graphviz outputs to be generated.
  • Existing VHDL IP can be imported.
  • Seamless co-simulation of C++ and VHDL outputs.

DOCUMENTATION

  • HTML documentation can be found in docs/build/html.
  • PDF documentation can be found in docs/build/latex.
