A Pascal compiler is described which can parse a limited subset of Pascal, and generates a circuit description in a format which can then be input to the UK5000 gate array software. A set of Pascal utilities completes this package by allowing the Pascal circuit description to be compiled by a standard Pascal system. This complete package allows the development of systems containing single or multiple UK5000 chips. More-over this can be performed on any software development system. The use of Pascal as a hardware description language is not new, but this system promotes good top-down hierarchical design of UK5000 chips and also allows quick and efficient verification of the system, prior to the automatic generation of data for entry into the UK5000 system.
