Workstations currently offer many opportunities for sophisticated communication between men and machines. VEGA, an object-orientedprogramming language, supports the creation of a ?visualized?hardware model?enabling experiment with and vertification ofdigital systems in a visual environment using interactive graphics. This article presents an overview of VEGA's motivationand background, a description of the language, and examples of visual simulation systems based on the visualized model. VEGAis named after a first-magnitude star?the brightest in the constellation Lyra?whose name in Japanese is Shokujo (a weavinggirl).
