Custom Compiler™ is Synopsys' full-custom solution that features the pioneering visually-assisted automation flow that speeds up custom design tasks, reduces iterations and enables reuse. Tuned for rapid implementation of FinFET custom designs, it shortens the time it takes to complete FinFET custom 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.
The visually-assisted automation flow in Custom Compiler is based on four types of Assistants: Layout, In-Design, Template and Co-Design. With Custom Compiler, routine and repetitive tasks are dealt with automatically without extra setup and the intuitive menu structure ensures a minimal learning curve for experienced layout engineers. Custom Compiler provides an open environment spanning schematic, simulation analysis and layout. Unified with Synopsys' circuit simulation, physical verification and digital implementation tools, Custom Compiler provides a comprehensive custom design solution.
