This paper describes the SLIDE language?a hardware-descriptive language desigued for the description of input/output, interfaces, and interconnected digital systems. The language allows the description of asynchronous, concurrent processes which can communicate. Timing and synchronization mechanisms are capable of being described as well. Current research applications include the use of the SLIDE language for I/O simulation and for verification of synchronization mechanisms.
