Laker Mini Demos

Schematic-driven layout (SDL) methodology brings many benefits, but adoption of it has lagged because of the restrictions it sometimes places on layout flexibility. Laker’s next-generation SDL methodology is much more flexible, providing Laker users with the productivity benefits of SDL without sacrificing area. Key Laker SDL innovations have made it the dominate methodology used for layout with Laker.
