Abstract:
AENT91 and AENT-TTL are AHPL to EDIF netlist translator for the AHPL hardware programming language. Although they are able to provide connections to L-EditTM, GateSimTM and OrCAD/VSTTM some embedded limitations inhibit them from providing more useful connections to other advanced commercial CAD tools. This thesis describes a new AHPL Netlist Format Translator (ANFT) which serves as a multi-target translator with some local optimization processes for AHPL. The limitations of AENT91 and AENT-TTL as well as the design considerations of ANFT are discussed in the first of the three parts of this thesis. Implementation details are provided in the second part. In the last part, tests of ANFT output files and comparisons of results from AENT91, AENT-TTL and ANFT translated AHPL benchmarks are presented. The results show that ANFT not only provides better results but also successfully connects AHPL to more commercial CAD tool systems.
