It does seem like the basic definition of IP as a building block is the big problem. This locks you in to a bottom up approach. We need a "compiler" that can pull from the "library" of building block components and customize then as required to meet the high level requirements (speed, power, latency, etc). 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...

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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
