<p>This is a review of Processor Description Languages (edited by Prabhat Mishra and Nikil Dutt). This book is likely to become the main resource for anyone wanting to understand the ADL area in detail. The book's 14 chapters contain detailed descriptions of 11 industrial and academic ADLs used for ASIP creation. In addition, it summarizes the salient features of eight more approaches in a concluding chapter. It thus can serve as the standard comparative reference work for this approach to processor-centric design for several years to come.</p>
