This report gives an overview, work statement, and status of research for the contract Conversion of Algorithms to Custom Integrated Circuits. The basic conceptual framework for this work is to recognize that the design of custom integrated circuits involves the specification of a number of different levels of representation that are qualitatively as well as quantitatively different, and that there is the necessity to derive a set of transformations between these representations so that the complete design can be specified. Accordingly, the work described in this report deals with ways in which these representations can be established as well as the means of deriving one representation from others. An overview of the entire project is given, followed by detailed description of several different projects focused on the different levels of representation. These include artwork analysis, circuit characterization, logic checking, the design for several application domains, and comments relative to the changing technological base.
