The DAC 2017 Custom Compiler Lunch Videolog showcases how Panasonic, STMicroelectronics, TDK-Micronas and TSMC deployed Custom Compiler to improve productivity for both FinFET and established nodes.
Custom Compiler™ is Synopsys’ full-custom solution that features the pioneering visually-assisted automation flow to speed up common design tasks, reduce iterations and enable reuse. Tuned for rapid implementation of FinFET-based mixed-signal circuits, Custom Compiler is ideally suited to tackle tough advanced-node custom design challenges.
Custom Compiler shortens FinFET design tasks from days to hours. Its visually-assisted automation flow leverages 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. The visually-assisted automation flow in Custom Compiler is based on four types of Assistants: Layout, In-Design, Template and Co-Design.
