System Specification with the SpecCharts Language
October/December 1992 (vol. 9 no. 4)
pp. 6-13

The SpecCharts language, which builds on VHDL to meet the unique requirements of system-level specification and design, is described. With an underlying model of behavioral hierarchy, SpecCharts modeling constructs enable designers to capture system specifications simply and precisely. SpecCharts constructs facilitate system-level design tasks by permitting high-level communication, maintaining information, and allowing design modification at an easy-to-comprehend level. The results of system-level design tasks are reflected in a modified SpecCharts, enabling the designer to evaluate the quality of each step. A detailed example demonstrates the use of SpecCharts.
