1. Introduction. The purpose of this article is to present a revised version of an early paper by the author on a register transfer, logic design language and its application to the design of early microprogrammable computer. This paper  as an invited paper at an IRE was presented originally at an IEEE meeting held at the Moore School of the University of Pennsylvania, early in 1957. It is being published here in the open literature for the first time in order to present to a wider audience this approach to computer design in its original form.
