Abstract:

The Multicomponent Synthesis System MSS is a vertically integrated collection of design synthesis tools for top-down design of multichip modules MCMs from behavioral specifications. MSS consists of a high-level synthesis subsystem, a partitioning engine, a collection of structural silicon compilers, a test compiler, a test bench compiler, a package compiler, a performance specification and verification subsystem, and various component libraries and technology files. MSS is a VHDL-centered design environment. MSS blends synthesis and simulation tools operating at various levels of abstraction to quickly design correct application-specific MCMs. Functional test bench compilation, in conjunction with boundary-scan architecture and WAVES test data exchange notation is used as the primary means of achieving this goal. This document describes the objectives of the MSS project, methods employed, and final accomplishments.
