Interesting to read about the blurring of the tool/IP boundary. We see this happening in a big way in our offering (ART). Complex IP has to include tools that allow the user to configure that IP and generate/have models to use in system verification. When the IP is dynamically reconfigurable this becomes even more important.

While the term ESL may indeed not be an ideal acronym, it is an important step in raising the abstraction level of design and verification - which will enable ever more complex chips to be created.

ESL...I'm sure this tool was created by the same group of idiots that insist on naming every half-baked EDA methodology with 3 letter acronyms.
