ICGlue is a Tcl-Library for scripted HDL generation

ICGlue is a C/Tcl based library and tool for scripted generation of hardware description. The focus here is on simplifying to create module hierarchy, connectivity and configuration via register-files. Created output contains modules in a hardware description language (currently only systemverilog/verilog) and register-file documentation.

Features

Current features are:

  • Read in a user-defined Tcl construction script to describe hierarchy, connectivity and config registers.
  • Run some sanity checks.
  • Write out code/documentation defined by customizable Tcl-based templates.

Planned features: see todo-list.

Documentation

For an overview see icglue. For library documentation build the doxygen documentation by running

make docs

and browse it in firefox by running

make showdocs

Dependencies

Main

  • glib2
  • tcl8.6

Optional

  • nagelfar (for Tcl syntax checks)
  • doxygen (for source code documentation)

Build

  • gcc
  • make
  • pkg-config (with configs for glib2 and Tcl - otherwise you need to patch lib/Makefile)

Test

  • iverilog
  • libpcl (portable coroutine library)

Build

Run

make

to build core library and Tcl package. Run

make everything

to build doxygen-Documentation (needs doxygen) and nagelfar syntaxfiles as well (needs nagelfar installed).

Install

Run e.g.

DESTDIR=/opt/icglue make install

to install to /opt/icglue.

Licensing

Acknowledgement

After the initial phase, most of the work for ICGlue was done at the Chair of Highly-Parallel VLSI Systems and Neuro-Microelectronics (HPSN) at TU Dresden (see HPSN). It is inspired by its predecessor icsng developed by Jens-Uwe Schlüssler.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
