This paper explores a concurrency control mechanism which is suitable for the protection of VLSI design data against interfering concurrent accesses. VLSI design transactions are typically of long duration with frequent concurrent read-write and read-read accesses. A version mechanism is known to be very effective in long duration transaction systems with frequent concurrent read-write accesses. Although a design version mechanism, which is offered to the designers to maintain the evolution of… CONTINUE READING
