Abstract: This paper describes a set of design tools built at Linköping University to support automated synthesis of integrated circuits. They consists of algorithms for 1) automatic generation of unified design representations from high level behavioral descriptions, 2) synthesis of optimal data path and control, and 3) partitioning of VLSI systems into asynchronous modules. The set of design tools is integrated to form a unified design environment based on a design representation model derived from timed Petri net notation. Several ongoing projects are being carried out to enrich the design environment and will also be discussed in this paper.
