A Model-Based Expert System for Digital System Design
November/December 1990 (vol. 7 no. 6)
pp. 24-40

An expert system that generates digital system design from high-level specifications is described. It is called MBESDSD, short for model-based expert system for automated digital systems. The system is based on a three-phase model of digital system design. First, the high-level behavioral specifications are translated into a sequence of primitive behavioral operations. Next, these primitive operations are grouped to form intermediate-level behavioral functions. Finally, structural function modules are selected to implement these functions. The advantages of this model-based reasoning technique is that more design solutions are possible and the design is easier to optimize. The design of a popular peripheral device, the ART asynchronous receiver/transmitter, is used to demonstrate the proposed design process using MBESDSD.
