MatchLib Connections

MatchLib Connections is a SystemC library implementing latency-insensitive channels for use by High-Level synthesis tools.

Documentation on the Connections latency-insensitive channel implementation can be found in the Connections Guide.

Connections has been used as a component of the MatchLib hardware component library. For more documentation about compiling and running Connections components, see the MatchLib documentation.


Connections was originally part of the MatchLib project of NVIDIA Research.
