Resource Estimation Backend
The resources estimation backend aims to provide a size estimation for the hardware that Calyx generates. Currently, it only supports estimation for
seq_mem_* primitives, but more primitives will be added.
Running the resource estimation backend
cargo buildif you haven't built the compiler already.
fud e path/to/futil.file --to resources. This should tally up the primitives used in the program and output a CSV with the number of instantiated primitives according to their attributes.
To output the CSV to a file, you can use
If you would like to see an English summary of the CSV as well as the estimated size of the hardware (counting only the supported primitives), add the verbose flag
