While MyHDL code is pure Python, numpy and scipy are not. They each
have significant portions implemented in C and FORTRAN; in particular,
all of the FFT implementations in numpy and scipy are in C or FORTRAN.
You will not be able to translate them to MyHDL code. I don't know who
suggested this to you, but they are obviously unfamiliar with numpy
and scipy. This will not be a fruitful line of investigation.
