What is the cReComp?

The cReComp is a code generator and framework for componentization of a single hardware or the multiple hardware. The component generated by the cReComp is HW/SW co-system that is connected between CPU and FPGA (reconfigurable hw). The cReComp is possible to debug and test single hardware with software in a user development phase. When the development of a each hardware have been finished, the cReComp generates one of the HW/SW co-system by integrating the each of the hardware.

cReComp supports ROS

ROS is an open source project by OSRF (Open Source Robotics Foundation). It is not an operating system but a software platform for component-oriented development of robotic application software on an OS. Communication library and a build system for robotic application software are provided in ROS. cReComp can generated ROS-compliant component which is included FPGA processing.

Update

  • 2016/11/29 version 1.5.1
    • Added testbench generation. You can generate a testbench with option “-t”.
  • 2016/11/29 version 1.5.0
    • cReComp can generate a ROS package with Python code. So, you can use the component more easy.
    • The Component generation with C++ is unable, since the function is debugging now.
  • 2016/07/25 version 1.4.0
    • scrp_parser was improved functionally and become to be able to parse more accurately
  • 2016/07/05 version 1.3.0
    • scrp supported ROS packages generation
  • 2016/07/04 version 1.1.0 & 1.2.0
    • cReComp supported configuration with scrp (specification for cReComp)
    • cReComp supported ROS package generation
  • 2016/06/30 version 1.0.0
    • Released first version
