Abstract


This work describes the design and implementation of a tool to automatically translate

data structure descriptions, extracted from debug information embedded into object

files, into hardware description languages. Existing proven technologies like DWARF

and VHDL are used in novel ways, thereby tackling certain challenges in the overall

context of improving non-functional properties of operating systems through the use of

FPGAs. Various aspects of the usage environment, the inner workings and of further

possible uses are discussed in detail. Also described are current and possible extensions

to other output formats and languages and potential problems during use.
