\only<1>{
	Overall view of the circuit: E.g. block-diagrams or instruction-set architecture descriptions
}%
\only<2>{
	Functional implementation of circuit in high-level programming language (C, C++, SystemC, Matlab, Python, etc.).
}%
\only<3>{
	Cycle-accurate description of circuit in hardware description language (Verilog, VHDL, etc.).
}%
\only<4>{
	List of registers (flip-flops) and logic functions that calculate the next state from the previous one. Usually
	a netlist utilizing high-level cells such as adders, multiplieres, multiplexer, etc.
}%
\only<5>{
	Netlist of single-bit registers and basic logic gates (such as AND, OR,
	NOT, etc.). Popular form: And-Inverter-Graphs (AIGs) with pairs of primary
	inputs and outputs for each register bit.
}%
\only<6>{
	Netlist of cells that actually are available on the target architecture
	(such as CMOS gates in an ASCI or LUTs in an FPGA). Optimized for
	area and/or and/or speed (static timing or number of logic levels).
}%
\only<7>{
	Netlist of individual transistors.
