With the growing popularity of using high-level synthesis tools to map programs written in general-purpose programming languages to FPGA (field programmable gate array) hardware, it has become necessary to provide comprehensive, intuitive debugging tools in order to verify the correctness of the synthesized hardware. The difficulty in creating these tools lies in the fact that typical synthesizing compilers provide no information about how the source code is mapped to hardware. This paper discusses the creation of a debugger for the Sea Cucumber synthesizing compiler used to explore the issues associated with providing information about a circuit in the context of the original source code, thus making the debugging process more intuitive.
