The multicompact synthesis (MSS) integrated design environment for multichip modules (MCMs) is discussed. The MSS environment is centered in VHDL (very-high-speed integrated circuit hardware description language), WAVES (waveform and vector exchange specification), and PDL (performance description language). MSS provides four levels of automated synthesis support all the way from the behavioral level to MCM placement and routing, three levels of simulation support including behavioral, register, and switch levels, and tools for automated test-bench compilation and design validation for all synthesized designs. Three tutorial examples illustrate MSS algorithms and results. The primary example is the Find, which performs a bubble sort followed by binary search. It is used as the running example because it is small. Such small specifications, however, do not require MCMs. Two larger examples, the Move Machine and the Viper Microprocessor, are used to illustrate the results.<>
