Commercial SystemC synthesis tools routinely produce more efficient hardware than handwritten RTL code typically produces. We argue that properties of C-like languages make this synthesis process computationally hard and time-consuming. Although some of the properties has cited do make synthesis more difficult, those problems have largely been solved. Fundamentally, the complexity imposed on these synthesis products results from starting at a higher abstraction level, not from the language
