The paper describes a knowledge-based framework for VLSI design. Knowledge required for VLSI design is distinguished in representational and procedural knowledge. Representational knowledge models components, modules, and VLSI circuits. Procedural knowledge models the problem solving strategies, heuristics, and methods employed by engineers in VLSI design. A planner constitutes the reasoning mechanism of the framework. The planner accepts problems, finds the appropriate actions that yield a successful design, and solves the problem. The software implementation of the framework is described, and the operation of a general purpose shell for VLSI design is presented. © 1990. (EN)
