In order to manage the higher complexity of VLSI chips and to reach shorter design cycles, the design effort becomes increasingly focused on higher levels of abstraction. We describe the modeling of some modules of an high speed telecommunication circuit, an ATM Switch Controller (ASC) using the Protocol Compiler or Dali (TM) from Synopsys (TM). Dali (TM) supports a fast and compact graphical entry of a protocol controller hardware description with graphical signs similarly to formula symbols. The output of the synthesis with Dali (TM) is simulated. Advantages of this design method are discussed and the results of the synthesis are presented.
