Abstract : High-level functional (or behavioral) simulation models are difficult, time-consuming, and expensive to develop. We report on a method for automatically generating the program code for a high-level functional simulation model. The high-level model is produced directly from the program code for the circuit components' functional models and a netlist description of their connectivity. A prototype has been implemented in LISP for the SIMMER functional simulator.
