Deductive hardware design: a functional approach

  • The goal of deductive design is the systematic construction of a system implementation starting from its behavioural specification according to formal, provably correct rules. We use Gofer/Haskell to formulate a functional model of directional, synchronous and deterministic systems with discrete time. The associated algebraic laws are then employed in deductive hardware design of basic combinational and sequential circuits as well as a brief account of pipelining. With this we tackle several of the IFIP WG 10.5 benchmark verification problems. Special emphasis is laid on parameterisation and re-usability aspects.
