Comment: HLS (Score 4, Informative) 365

What you want to do is called high-level synthesis (going from C to hardware description language (HDL) to generating gate-lists from that HDL) and there's plenty of software to do that with. A neat open-source package for HLS is LegUp (http://legup.eecg.utoronto.ca/), check it out to get an idea of what the process consists of.
