A new applicative design language is proposed for developing generators of data-path modules from hardware algorithms. The language includes a set of primitives that represent placement operations, parameterized cells, routing patterns and a set of transformation rules specifying modifications of the module topology without changing its functionality. Using the language, a hardware algorithm designer can easily define both the topological and geometrical specifications of module generation directly at the functional level without engaged in the layout details. A sketch of the language and an example of module design with the language is presented.
