Title: A structural design language for computer aided design of digital systems
Author: vanCleemput, Willem M.
Date: April 1977
Abstract: In this report a language (SDL) for describing structural properties of digital systems will be presented. SDL can be used at all levels of the design process, i.e. from the system level down to the circuit level. The language is intended as a complement to existing computer hardware description languages, which emphasize behavioral description. The language was motivated partly by the nature of the design process.
