Abstract: This paper describes a unified design representation and its application in synthesizing VLSI systems. The synthesis process consists of sequence of semantics-preserving mappings transforming a program-like behavioral description into a structural description, which may then be partitioned into several potential asynchronous modules with well-defined interfaces. The proposed design representation model leads to the effective use of CAD and automatic tools in the synthesis process and the possibility of verifying some aspects of a design before it is completed.
