This paper presents a hierarchical, object-oriented model as a basis for reuse of components in the design process of digital systems. The model forms a uniform knowledge base which consists of formal descriptions about functional, qualitative, and quantitative properties of systems and components. It supports the synthesis of systems from the described(More)
Digital systems can be specified conveniently at the system level by a set of requirements the target system should meet. The problem about this kind of specification is that there is no algorithmic way to gain an efficient system architecture fulfilling these requirements in the general case. This paper deals with the question of if restricting the design(More)
This paper describes a method for the design of digital systems that automaticallyderives an executable prototype of a system from an informal specification. Our method bases on an object-oriented hierarchy of classes which describe the functions of components. A tree of instances of these classes representing a certain system is built depending on the(More)
In this paper we present a new method to specify digital systems at the system level and to automatically transform a speciJication into a set of required system components from which in tum a complete system can be constructed using a knowledge-based configuration system. Our approach bases on an object-oriented domain model which captures all knowledge(More)
