With the rapid evolution of integrated circuit (IC) technology to larger and more complex circuits, new approaches are needed for the design and verification of these very-large-scale integrated (VLSI) circuits. A large number of design methods are currently in use. However, the evolution of these computer aids has occurred in an ad hoc manner. In most cases, computer programs have been written to solve specific problems as they have exist and no truly integrated computer-aided desisn (CAD… CONTINUE READING
