11.4.1. RTL Modules and the HLS Pipeline

HLS libraries allows you to use RTL modules that are written in Verilog, SystemVerilog, or VHDL inside HLS components. The Intel® HLS Compiler integrates the RTL modules into the HLS pipeline architecture.

Consider using HLS libraries in the following situations:

  • You want to use optimized and verified RTL modules in HLS components without rewriting the modules as C++ functions.
  • You want to implement HLS component functionality that you cannot express effectively in C++.
