Architecture description languages are widely used to perform architecture exploration for application-driven designs, whereas the RT-level is the commonly accepted level for hardware implementation. For this reason, design parameters such as timing, area or power consumption cannot be taken into consideration accurately during design space exploration. Design automation tools currently used to bridge this gap are either limited in the flexibility provided or only generate fragments of the architecture. This paper presents a synthesis tool which preserves the full flexibility of the architecture description language LISA, while being able to generate the complete architecture on RT-level using systemC. This paper also presents two real world architecture case studies to prove the feasibility of our approach.
