Standard LSI Design Automation systems are database management systems that aid the circuit designer by organizing the collection of submodules that comprise a chip. This type of file system usually does not aid in the actual computation of silicon layout, and can hinder a designer with program constraints that have little or nothing to do with silicon(More)
Current LSI technology allows the systems designer to construct complex data processing structures containing tens of thousands of transistors on single silicon chips. Constraints imposed by the technology influence design tradeoffs and result in computer architectures dramatically different from the more classical computer designs. At CalTech we are(More)
