As the heart of the Synopsys Custom Design Platform, Custom Compiler provides design entry, simulation management and analysis, and custom layout editing features. It delivers industry-leading productivity, performance, and ease-of-use while remaining easy to adopt for users of legacy tools.
Custom Compiler’s design environment includes features for mixed-signal design entry, design debug, simulation management, analysis, and reporting. For layout, Custom Compiler provides fast and user-friendly polygon editing features and boosts productivity with its pioneering visually-assisted automation flow. Visually-assisted automation is an innovative approach that delivers 2-10X better layout productivity—especially for difficult FinFET-based designs. Custom Compiler includes built-in verification features to catch physical and electrical errors during layout. These include design rule checking, electromigration checking, and resistance and capacitance extraction. Custom Compiler makes it easy to communicate design intent and achieve analog design closure, with support for templates and early parasitic simulation.
