Abstract Hardware description languages use a low level of abstraction making the task of hardware designers error-prone and time consuming. The resulting descriptions tend to be lengthy and hard to reason about. This paper presents a minimal functional language for describing hardware circuits. Using multistage programming concepts, Fast Fourier Transform circuit descriptions can be generated in this language from a higher level generic description. It bridges the gap between the generated code and the required low-level hardware description by presenting the translator to automatically convert the generated code into Verilog, a streamline hardware description language.
