Providing various assistances for design modifications on HDL source codes is important for design reuse and quick design cycle in VLSI CAD. Program slicing is a softwareengineering technique for analyzing, abstracting, and transforming programs. We show algorithms for extracting/removing behaviors of specified signals in VHDL descriptions. We also describe a VHDL slicing system and show experimental results of efficiently extracting components from VHDL descriptions.
