A Stream Compiler (ASC) generates netlists for hardware (FPGA) accelerators from C-like descriptions, obviating the need for hardware skills. We present a backend adapter that enables integration of such accelerators with a processor core in the same FPGA. Development of hybrid ASC-accelerated applications using software-only skills is thus made possible, as illustrated by a hybrid power-conscious iDCT implementation.
