In that case, please check us out, Space Codesign.  We have the capability of going to implementation after algorithm design and validation, and architecture design exploration.  Implementation can either map to libraries (e.g., Xilinx for FPGA) or to HLS (high level synthesis - Forte, Calypto, Xilinx, etc.) after design exploration figures out meeting your requirements.

By the way, Guy Bois, our president has a new blog article on this site discussing our approach.

The tool would search thru the solution space to find a particular combination that fits the requirements (or comes back with a 'no solution' result). That's the direction I'd like to see things move...
