ASIC Design Tools and Methodologies


Expotential growth of technology capabilities and increasing need for accuracy necessary to implement deep submicron circuits created new challenges for tools and methodologies used in ASIC design. To meet both the performance and time to market requirements of an ASIC designer, it is necessary to complement best in class commercial EDA tools with in-house developped design tools and a rich set of libraries and cores. The presentation describes the evolution of LSI Logic Flexstream Design Kit as it was adapted to growing demands of designers.
