Abstract: The complexity of VLSI circuits creates a challenge to the skills of IC designers. Reduction of the problems complexity is possible by decomposing it in several dimensions: as a sequence of models, through hierarchy within models, and by utilization of regularity. The set of models, model-to-model transformations and design constraints define the design method supported by the CAD system.
