The Logic Synthesis System (LSS), originally developed at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center, is the tool that accepts a technology independent Register-Transfer description of some digital logic and generates a technology specific circuit implementation. This tool has been previously used to synthesize chips for the IBM 3090 mainframe computers employing bipolar technology [DAR2]. The Capitol chip set was the first application of logic synthesis in the development of CMOS chips.
