Advanced ASIC Chip Synthesis: utilizing Synopsys® DesignCompiler® and PrimeTime® describes the complicated techniques and strategies used for ASIC chip synthesis, formal verification and static timing research, utilizing the Synopsys suite of instruments. moreover, the whole ASIC layout circulation technique exact for VDSM (Very-Deep-Sub-Micron) applied sciences is roofed intimately.
The emphasis of this e-book is on real-time software of Synopsys instruments used to strive against numerous difficulties noticeable at VDSM geometries. Readers could be uncovered to an efficient layout technique for dealing with complicated, sub-micron ASIC designs. value is put on HDL coding kinds, synthesis and optimization, dynamic simulation, formal verification, DFT experiment insertion, hyperlinks to structure, and static timing research. At each one step, difficulties concerning each one part of the layout move are pointed out, with recommendations and work-arounds defined intimately. moreover, an important matters with regards to format, consisting of clock tree synthesis and back-end integration (links to structure) also are mentioned at size. additionally, the ebook includes in-depth discussions at the fundamentals of Synopsys know-how libraries and HDL coding types, detailed in the direction of optimum synthesis suggestions.
Advanced ASIC Chip Synthesis: utilizing Synopsys® DesignCompiler® and PrimeTime® is meant for a person who's considering the ASIC layout method, ranging from RTL synthesis to ultimate tape-out. aim audiences for this ebook are working towards ASIC layout engineers and graduate scholars project complex classes in ASIC chip layout and DFT concepts.
From the Foreword:
`This ebook, written via Himanshu Bhatnagar, offers a complete evaluate of the ASIC layout circulate designated for VDSM applied sciences utilizing the Synopsis suite of instruments. It emphasizes the sensible concerns confronted by way of the semiconductor layout engineer by way of synthesis and the mixing of front-end and back-end instruments. conventional layout methodologies are challenged and exact strategies are provided to assist outline the subsequent new release of ASIC layout flows. the writer presents a number of sensible examples derived from real-world events that may end up useful to training ASIC layout engineers in addition to to scholars of complicated VLSI classes in ASIC design'.

Example text

The chapter offers minimal or no explanation, for Synopsys commands (they are explained in subsequent chapters). The emphasis is on outlining the practical aspects of the ASIC design flow described in Chapter 1, with Synopsys synthesis in the center. This helps the reader correlate the theoretical concepts with its practical application. Although, the previous chapter stressed skipping the gate-level simulation in favor of formal verification techniques, many designers are reluctant to forego the former step.

B) Formal verification. 1 Gate-Level Simulation with Pre-Layout SDF This topic needs no clarification, as everyone in the ASIC world is well versed to the process of dynamic simulation. Simulating the structural netlist involves exercising combinations of input signals, while observing the outputs. This is generally performed by means of a test-bench coded in Verilog or VHDL, which emulates the whole system. In other words, it incorporates/envelops the tap_controller design. Dynamic simulation of the gate-level is the traditional approach and is still regarded by many as the best way to debug the design, and to check for functionality at the same time.
