Abstract

The requirements to improve product cycle and reduce silicon costs are constantly being evaluated, compromised and exploited. Improving product cycle time generally requires an increase in silicon, while reduced sihn size increases cycle time. These opposing objectives have been overcome with a new technique called Schematic Driven Layout (SDL). This report will discuss the development requirements of SDL and its application to full custom bipolar design.
