Abstract:
Hardware description languages provide digital system designers with a convenient, compact method for describing complex circuits. A Hardware Programming Language (AHPL) is a powerful description language based on the APL programming language. AHPL circuit descriptions can be unambiguously translated into a logic gate network using the HPCOM hardware compiler. The initial discussion section covers the conversion of the VAX version of HPCOM into a version which will run on MS-DOS microcomputers. The major portion of the research focuses on the development, use, and application of a graphics display tool for HPCOM-generated networks. The display package, SUBGRAPH, allows selected subgraphs of a network to be viewed and/or printed. The discussion of this research concludes with an extensive example of the complete circuit generation and graphics display sequence. The printed graphics examples feature cases of particular interest for test generation.
