Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present how to use shobi-PN, an object-oriented Petri net model to specify data path/control systems. In a case study, a transputer link adaptor is specified for rapid prototyping by applying the shobi-PN model and the generation of VHDL code for simulation is presented. The case study demonstrates the applicability and the capability of a development process, supported by the use of object-oriented principles to model both the control unit and the data path of complex systems, with a developed CAD tool.
Keywords: VHDL code generation, computer control systems, object modeling techniques, object-oriented Petri nets, rapid prototyping, shobi-PN.
