In the field of chip design, hardware module reuse is a standard solution to the increasing complexity of chip architecture and the pressures to reduce time to market. In the absence of a single module interface standard, integration of pre-designed modules often requires the use of protocol converters. For an arbitrary pair of incompatible protocols it is likely that there exist more than one possible converter. However, existing approaches to automatic synthesis of protocol converters either produce a single suggested converter or provide a general nondeterministic solution, out of which a designer is required to extract a deterministic converter.
