Abstract : Palladio is a circuit design environment for experimenting with methodologies and knowledge-based, expert-system design aids. Palladio's framework is based on several premises about circuit design: (a) Circuit design is a process of incremental refinement; (b) It is an exploratory process in which design specifications and design goals co-evolve; and (c) Circuit designers need an integrated design environment that makes available compatible design tools ranging from simulators to layout generators, permits specification of digital systems in compatible languages ranging anywhere from architectural to layout, and includes the means for explicitly representing, constructing, and testing such design tools and languages
