In order to cope with the increasing design complexity, it is necessary to build new designs not from scratch but in reusing existing components. Design reuse is not limited to code fragments or small existing blocks (gates) but rather may include design structures, module-level implementation structures, specifications, documentation, transformations and so on. This paper discusses hardware reuse and introduces an integration method able to handle design reuse at the behavioral level.
