@lleiva: Do you think that all ED will move from HDL to HLS? The end of days for HDLs is coming soon? 


This is a tricky one. As I said in my talk, when we used to design a tth egate level and the more to RTL and Synthesis came along, a lot of designers resisted it. The ones who continued to resist are no longer designers. Now we have HLS -- there will always be a need for some amount of "hand-crafted design" at the RTL level (in the same way that we still used hand-crafted assembly language in some performance-critical software applications), but in the same way tha twriting programs in C is faster/easier than writing them in assembly, capturing designs at a high level and using HLS conveys a lot of advantages... I woudl say that most designers will be using a mix of HLS and RTL in just a coupel of years...
