Fast Integration of EDA Tools and Scripting Languages

  title={Fast Integration of EDA Tools and Scripting Languages},
    EDA tools are implemented to automate a design task efficiently, but they often lack flexibility to be highly customizable or programmable. Some EDA tools have a primitive and unique command language to realize programmability, but usually it further complicates a design flow. We thus propose methods and techniques to fast link EDA tools with a popular scripting language such as Perl[1], Python[2] or Tcl[3] for ease-of-use and better integration. This approach encourages rapid prototyping of… CONTINUE READING
