Abstract : A method for generating custom self timed integrated circuits (ICs) from algorithmic descriptions of the desired circuits. The goal is to quickly produce prototype integrated circuit masks that implement various algorithms and data types in order to evaluate the IC power, delay, and area characteristics. A topology and behavior preserving mapping is used to perform the translation from constructs in the function language to mask primitives. Keywords: Algorithms; Integrated circuits masks; Self timed integrated circuits; High level language; Compilers; Translator; Algol 68; Templates.
