Abstract:

Many aspects of digital design have been computerized in the past. Symbolic design, state reduction, state assignment, logic realization and simulation are a few of these individual processes. The computerized Logic-Oriented Design System CLODS is an attempt to consolidate previous individual efforts into an integrated digital design system. The thesis is a study of several symbolic design languages currently available which could be used in the symbolic design phase of an automated design system. One language, the Digital Design Language DDL, is chosen as the most desirable in terms of conciseness, readability, and flexibility. A translation program, which converts a DDL description into Boolean equations and state tables, is implemented in the FORTRAN language using a previously written program as the basis. The method of translation and the actual programs are discussed in detail. Modified author abstract
