A silicon compiler is a software program procedure which may immediately generate an built-in circuit from a user's specification.
Anatomy of a Silicon Compiler examines one such compiler intimately, overlaying the elemental framework and layout access, the particular algorithms and libraries that are used, the method of verification and trying out, behavioral synthesis instruments and several other purposes which exhibit the system's functions.

11). Some of the functions included in the standard file are: 10g2 integer-length bitsize if I stringify termpos termsize mkpinstring mkpinlist getpin pinlist pin getval These functions help to simplify common parameterized property declarations. Each level of a design hierarchy uses a separate set (or closure) of variables for parameter evaluation within that part of the design. For the most part, all variables are passed explicitly through a design hierarchy, to avoid ambiguity for similar subcells.

The conversion of Viewlogic-Viewbase schematics to a LAGER view is done by vb2oct. The vb20ct program converts each schematic to a structure-master view. Full timestamp checking is done so that only those schematics which are younger than the corresponding structure_master view are converted. It is important to realize that the schematic represents the structure_master view and not the structure_instance view. For designs with no parameters (designs with constant bus sizes, non-parameterized components such as standard cellleafcells) these views are essentially the same.

This schematic has no parameters and thus can simulated without invoking vb2oct. 3 is a schematic of a parameterized component called "MOVE" which is used as part of a chip that plays TicTacToe. 3). The bag component labeled SP is used to create an OCT bag named SP in the structure_master view. Attributes attached to a bag component get translated to OCT string properties attached to the OCT bag object. 3: BDS block schematic structure-processors to run on the structure_instance view. The S P 1 structure processor is executed first, the SP2 structure_processor next, and so forth.
