    A Just-In-Time Compiler for Verilog from VMware Research (by vmware-archive)

    I think VMWare did a just-in-time compilation for verilog called Cascade that I don't think ever got a lot of traction that seems to do parts of what you are looking for in that code first gets executed in a simulator until hardware-compilation is done in which case it is automatically migrated to the hardware/accelerated version. Sadly, the tool/project seems to have been shelved by VMWare and development has moved out into original author's private repo which I think itself may say something about the idea.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • Chips-2.0

    FPGA Design Suite based on C to Verilog design flow.

    There is this neat work that compiles C code to verilog describing a tiny custom instruction set CPU just bug enough to complete the program. https://github.com/dawsonjon/Chips-2.0
