New PDF release: A Computer-Aided Design and Synthesis Environment for Analog

Within the first half the AMGIE analog synthesis process is defined. AMGIE is the 1st analog synthesis process that automates the whole layout method from requirements right down to demonstrated structure. it really is designated to the layout of moderate-complexity circuits. It is determined by layout and circuit wisdom kept within the tool's libraries and will be utilized by either beginner and skilled analog designers in addition to system-level designers.

Example text

I - RTL implementation only. This domain of intent was not defined by the specification or the architect/design phases. This happens frequently since there are many lower-level implementation details that neither the specification nor the design need to describe. SD - Specification and architect/design. This domain was defined by the specification and architect/design phases, but details were either missed during RTL implementation or deemed unnecessary (hence, the requirements were changed but not updated).

For instance, defining a set of RTL naming conventions, coding styles and rules, and coding restrictions allows designers to produce consistent code that is easily readable by all members of the team. A major reason for coding rules and restrictions is to help steer designers away from RTL code that is not sythesizable or prone to errors. Examples of general RTL coding conventions include the Reuse Methodology Manual [Keating and Bricaud 2002] and Principles of Verifiable RTL Design [Bening and Foster 2001].

With the increasing size and complexity of today’s designs, reuse of IP within these designs has become more important. It is essential that conventions be defined and followed in order to improve the reusability of IP across multiple designs. Finally, functional coverage models (see Chapter 5, “Functional Coverage”), as well as general coverage processes and coverage goals, must be defined at the beginning of the project. While coverage tools are effective in many ways, there are steps that designers can take that allow the specific coverage tools to recognize design elements (such as state machines) in an easier manner.
