Custom Design Automation (CDA®)

CDA is a new class of EDA tool – pioneered and developed by Pulsic – that releases engineers from the constraints imposed by ASIC design styles and automates complex custom design layout to give you faster design, more accurate iteration and better optimal outcomes 공인인증서 프로그램.

CDA brings together planning, placement and shape-based routing in a single hierarchical environment, enabling productivity boosts of up to 50% in custom layout to be realised 다운로드.

Automating mixed signal design

CDA reverses the traditional ‘bottom up’ custom design approach – starting with leaf cells of transistors, followed by layer-on-layer of logic – with a ‘top-down’ approach that integrates timing-driven placement, intelligent floorplanning and hierarchy management 해피시티 다운로드.

  • Tools to support simultaneous implementation of standard, custom cells and transistors in layout.
  • Automated constraint-driven floorplanning, placement, routing and editing 배달의민족 글꼴.

Shaping up for profit

Today’s CDA architectures incorporate intelligent floorplanning, hierarchy management with timing-driven and specialised placement technologies (for example, super cluster placement) on a constraint-driven shape-based routing foundation to deliver dramatic results 다운로드. A recent mixed-signal design – now in production – yielded a 25% area reduction and 20% less vias to improve yield.

In DRAM design, for example, CDA delivers – super cluster placement with spine and stitch routing – that resolves the commercial design challenge of minimising peripheral logic spine height 조아라 앱 다운로드.

From design to implementation

Homogenous and hierarchical constraint management across floorplanning, placement and routing means designers can set physical, electrical, object and inter-object relationships with constraints 다운로드. Together with other design intents – such as clustering, timing, width, spacing or shielding – these can be set and held in the design environment and maintained throughout physical implementation 다운로드.

Coping with change

A shape-based physical design platform also deals effectively with change, making it easy to assimilate new design rules and minimise the area impact of ECOs 넷플릭스 데스크탑.

With shape-based CDA, the change process becomes both interactive and iterative and s can be performed locally (unlike grid-based routers which handle ECOs by performing large scale re-routing of the design) 다운로드.

Incremental routing capabilities significantly reduce the time to incorporate ECOs. Designers can stop automatic routing, make adjustments to the floorplan, routing costs or other rules – or even route a section by hand – before recommencing auto-routing.
