This paper describes the T-Ruby system for designing VLSI circuits, starting from formal specifications in which they are described in terms of relational abstractions of their behaviour. The design process involves correctness-preserving transformations based on proved equivalences between relations, together with the addition of constr:sints. A class of implementable relations is defined. The tool enables such relations to be simulated or ti~anslated into a circuit description in VHDL. The
