Abstract: CAMAD is a high level design tool which helps designers to model, analyze, and design VLSI systems. This design aid system is based on a unified design representation model derived from timed petri nets and consisting of separate but related models of control and data parts. The present paper describes the automatic synthesis package of the CAMAD system which takes a high level behavioral description as its input and synthesizes it into an implementation structure. This implementation structure may then be partitioned into several quasi-independent modules with well-defined interfaces, which allows potentially asynchronous operation of the designed systems as well as physical distribution of the modules.
