Simulation now requires vast amounts of central processing unit time. This severely limits the size of a design that can be tested thoroughly. Incremental simulation is a possible solution to these limit. Specific synthesis and analysis tools are also proposed. The primary purpose of this project is to allow the designer to make changes and optimizations at as high a level as possible, while allowing him to observe the ramifications of his changes at a lower level and to help guide the synthesis routines in the selection of a good design. This user guidance is necessary because of the huge design search space faced by synthesis programs. The synthesis system displays the datacontrol flow graph extracted from a functional model on the window screen. And register- transfer representation of a behavioral level description is displayed on the screen after optimization effort by the system.
