Abstract:

The ASP effort is part of the Aquarius Project Aquarius, which is aimed at producing high-performance Prolog engines, realized in part with specialized high-quality microprocessors. Thus the focus of ASP is microprocessor synthesis, with a design domain of single synchronous chips with a single data path and control path. ASP is also meant to test Prolog as an implementation language for design automation. Because a full behavior-to- silicon compiler is a complex undertaking, we decompose the silicon compilation problem into three major abstract problem domains, ordered hierarchically see CADDY and OCCAM, for other similar decompositions.
