Abstract

A typical chip design process involves develop- ing the RTL (Register Transfer Language) model or behavioral hardware logic design model with spe- cific application or customer requirements. Future projects typically redesign the behavioral hardware logic design model from scratch. Even in the cases where models were "borrowed" from previous proj- ects, these models must be significantly altered to meet the new requirements.
