Getting To Tape-Out Quicker With Analog Layout Generators
Redaktionell betreuter Blog-Beitrag auf https://semiengineering.com, 07.10.2019
Generators for schematics, test benches, simulation control, and layouts can significantly increase efficiency in the various design phases. All design engineers know it well: there is hardly any time left until tape-out, but the amount of work that remains is not decreasing as fast as the deadline is approaching. The intricate schematic must still be implemented as a layout, and many recurring tasks slow down the progress. The real crux often lies in specific parts of the circuit - parts that often have lower performance demands but are necessary and take up a great deal of time in the design stage. Can automation help to save time here?
