This chapter addresses languages and CAD tools for the high-level modeling and synthesis of asynchronous circuits. The aim is briefly to introduce some basic concepts and a few representative and influential design methods. The interested reader will find more details elsewhere in this book (in Part II and chapter 13) as well as in the original papers that are cited in the text. In the last section we address the use of VHDL for the design of asynchronous circuits.
