In this paper, the authors present the DWARV C-to-VHDL generation toolset. The toolset provides support for broad range of application domains. It exploits the operation parallelism, available in the algorithms. Their designs are generated with a view of actual hardware/software co-execution on a real hardware platform. The carried experiments on the MOLEN polymorphic processor prototype suggest overall application speedups between 1.4x and 6.8x, corresponding to 13% to 94% of the theoretically achievable maximums, constituted by Amdahl's law.
