AbstractDesign automation systems use Computer Hardware Description Languages as the input languages to test and verify the design of digital systems. AHPL is a popular hardware description language used to describe digital systems. This language is supported by a function-level simulator (HPSIM2). This simulator was upgraded (HPSIM2_CL) to support the use of unit description called Combinational Logic Units or CLUNITs. This thesis presents the transition of HPSIM2_CL from the VAX to the Macintosh microcomputer environment. The modifications made to the simulator are explained, and examples to test and analyze execution performance are also presented.
