USE OF DDL IN AN AUTOMATIC LSI DESIGN AND TEST SYSTEM.
Breadboard implementations of hardware are traditionally used to work out the final changes in a design. This approach may not be suitable for a large scale integrated circuit design environment, especially when the complexity of the circuit is high. A thorough computer evaluation of the design would be a proper alternative, to minimize the costs of mask fabrication and wafer processing. The use of a Hardware Description Language to aid in the initial design evaluations and logic synthesis aspects of an automatic LSI design system is discussed. The Hardware Description Language selection process is described.
