A design automation system called KMDS, which makes use of a knowledge-based expert system and external algorithmic procedures to realize a modularized and flexible design automation tool, is presented. Its system configuration and characteristics, knowledge base and device libraries, top-down design methodology, and external utilities are described. Besides aiding the design of single-board microcomputers, KMDS helps designers of intelligence interface cards such as color display adapters and printer server cards. KMDS is flexible enough to incorporate various types of knowledge into the system and to overcome the problems that result from the existence of a large number of candidate solutions under a very high-level design specification. KMDS automatically generates a control program, making the fully automatic design of digital systems possible.<>
