Accelerating Robust Custom Design

The 2018 SNUG-SV Lunch & Learn panel focused on how Micron, Renesas, and Seagate are deploying the Synopsys Custom Design Platform to improve custom layout productivity, design robustness, and reliability.

Visually-assisted Automation for Custom Design

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.


  • Template Assistants help designers reuse existing custom layout know-how
  • In-Design Assistants reduce iterations with native design rule checks and parasitic extraction
  • Layout Assistants speed up layout tasks with user-guided placement and routing
  • Co-Design Assistants unify custom and digital flow to accelerate mixed-signal IC design
