Participant : Tanguy Risset.
Tanguy Risset is the main developer of MMAlpha since 1994 (http://www.irisa.fr/cosi/ALPHA/ ). The design and development of this software tool was the heart of several PhD theses, and MMAlpha is one of the few available tools for very high-level hardware synthesis (including the design of parallel Asics).
This tool is now in the public domain and has been used in many places (England, Canada, India, USA). Its development is shared between Compsys in Lyon and r2d2 in Rennes. MMAlpha is being evaluated by stm icroelectronics and has been a basis for Compsys participation to European and rntl calls for proposals.
