Abstract : A technique is proposed for the automatic system design of a digital computer. The desired computer is described in a FORTRAN-like language. This information is read by a (system) compiler which produces a micro-instruction flow-chart optimized according to the given criterion. This output is given to another (logic) compiler which produces the logic circuit diagram of the desired machine. The basic concepts and the proposed input language are discussed in this preliminary report and an example of the input for a full-fledged computer is given. (Author)
