 Arbitrary Python into silicon, that sounds like a dream, right? And it is :-) Don't expect this from MyHDL. Arbitrary Python into silicon, that sounds like a dream, right? And it is :-) Don't expect this from MyHDL.
  
-To convert MyHDL code into hardware, you will have to learn about synthesis, and especially about the modeling constraints that it imposes. These constraints are significant, and therefore synthesizable code may be suprisingly low-level to newcomers. +To convert MyHDL code into hardware, you will have to learn about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logic_synthesis|synthesis]], and especially about the modeling constraints that it imposes.
