Shortens FinFET Custom Design Tasks from Days to Hours
Custom Compiler brings new levels of productivity to FinFET layout by employing visually-assisted automation technologies that speed up common design tasks, reduce iterations, and enable reuse.
Custom Compiler Assistants are productivity aids that leverage the graphical use model familiar to layout designers while eliminating the need to write complicated code and constraints. With Custom Compiler, routine and repetitive tasks are dealt with automatically without extra setup. Custom Compiler provides four types of assistants: Layout, In-Design, Template and Co-Design.
"As the leader in analog/mixed-signal semiconductor IP, our team has been exposed to FinFET related design challenges very early in the foundry process development cycle," said Joachim Kunkel, executive vice president and general manager of the Solutions Group at Synopsys. "We asked the Custom Compiler development team to focus on improving FinFET layout productivity because we saw large increases in the layout effort across a wide range of IP development projects, from standard cells to high-performance SerDes. Custom Compiler's Layout Assistants allowed us to implement a novel layout methodology that reduces the time of many layout tasks from hours to minutes."
