How to compile chisel to HW?

Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding the chisel project, like XiangShan. As far as I know, the project generates verilog codes by default. However, I am interested in obtaining the HW dialect for analysis purposes. Can anyone provide me with some guidance on how to achieve this?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi! You can get HW dialect by using compiler option -ir-hw instead of -verilog or -split-verilog. I’m not familiar with XiangShan codebase but apparently these are the lines you might want to hack: XiangShan/Makefile at 047e34f9536258d2008cf19a60dd3e6a9fa1d88a · OpenXiangShan/XiangShan · GitHub


Thank you so much! I will try this option.
