Abstract:

Todays computers are among the most complex man made systems in existence today. How can we make our designs not only more precise, but make these systems more accurately and cost effectively achieve their goals We have begun to rely upon computer aided design techniques. The use of these techniques often commences not with the statement of the system goals, but rather with the specification of an architecture and a logic technology. In view of the high costs of computer development, we should be quite confident that our architecturetechnology combination is capable of meeting the system requirements before we proceed to more detailed design phases. The entire system design process must be integrated, and include performance prediction and verification techniques. This design process should be reflected in a single description language. A methodology for accomplishing this goal capable of employing many existing design practices is discussed here. Author
