Zeus is a technology-independent hardware description language which supports functional and structural (including layout) specifications. Among the interesting characteristics of Zeus are that type checking is used to prevent accidental power to ground connections and that only four basic type concepts (ARRAY, COMPONENT, boolean and multiplex) and the possibility to instantiate types as signals are used to describe complex hardware. Zeus has been tested on a variety of examples like: Finite state machines, comparators, multiplexors, adders, pattern matching, AM2901, dictionary machines and systolic stacks.
