Timing-driven optimization is imperative for the success of closure flows. The optimization engine applies changes to the design and estimates circuit delays quickly and accurately to improve timing, area, and power performance. This procedure is inherently complex and computationally challenging.
our company to move from LMS (Learning Management System) to EMS (EDA Management System), and finally we envision, very soon to be in DMS (Design Management System).Talking about ‘vsdflow’, it’s the main theme of this paper, and if I had to describe it in few lines, it’s a ‘plug and play (PnP)’ EDA management system, built for chip designers to implement their ideas and convert to GDSII.
Why “integrated”? Because at lower nodes, you have to integrate other parts of the flow. Sign-off (you can see power and timing buttons below), clock tree synthesis (you can see synthesis button) must be integrated, so we have a fully integrated PnR flow that we built from day one.
Get geared up for my next “to be” launched course on CCS timing libraries – Constructs and characterization. Let me be a bit frank here […]
Hello Long time … since my last post …. Reason : Hopefully, I have given enough time for you to get hold on my previous […]
Hello If you have read through my previous posts on the above topic, things have seriously become interesting over here. I mean, isn’t that exciting, […]
Hello I will derive the CMOS VTC in few steps, and below is the first one. We did derive the below equations sometime back, and […]
Hello So you are aware of the below image? No…. Well, this is CMOS – Voltage Transfer Characteristics curve and you use it almost daily. How? […]
