DPL/Daedalus design environment (for VLSI)

Abstract

The DPL/Daedalus design environment is an interactive VLSI design system implemented at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The system consists of several components: a layout language called DPL (for design procedure language); an interactive graphics facility (Daedalus); and several special purpose design procedures for constructing complex artifacts such as PLAs and microprocessor data paths. Coordinating all of these is a generalized property list data base which contains both the data representing circuits and the procedures for constructing them. The authors first review the nature of the data base and then turn to DPL and Daedalus, the two most common ways of entering information into the data base. The next two sections review the specialized procedures for constructing PLAs and data paths; the final section describes a tool for hierarchical node extraction. 5 references.
