A synthesis method for designing highly parallel algorithms in VLSI is presented. To illustrate the method, the familiar long multiplication algorithm for binary numbers is used. This algorithm is specified in the language Crystal, a very-high-level language for parallel processing. A total of 18 designs are derived from this specification. Each is optimal within its own class, which is charact
