We have developed a method to automatically generate a multi-input-adder circuit for an irregular array of partial products. "FASTOOL," an FIR Filter Automatic Synthesis TOOL for an HDL design environment, is proposed for use with this method and with conventional filter coefficient design programs. Filter design from specifications to the structure of Verilog-HDL has been automated. It is possible for a system designer to quickly perform filter LSI optimization by balancing cost and performance.
