Design reuse requires engineers to determine whether or not an existing block implements desired functionality. If a common high-level circuit model is used to represent components that are described at multiple levels of abstraction, comparisons between circuit specifications and a library of potential implementations can be performed accurately and quickly. A mechanism is presented for compactly specifying circuit functionality as polynomials at the word level. Polynomials can be used to… CONTINUE READING
