Abstract: The Advanced Silicon Compiler in Prolog (ASP) is a full-range hardware synthesis system based on Prolog. It produces VLSI masks from instruction set architecture specifications written in Prolog. The system is composed of several hierarchical components that span behavioral, circuit, and geometric synthesis. This report describes the prototype ASP system and its major components.
