SoC compiler puzzle

Defacto SoC Compiler whose 9.0 release was announced recently automates the SoC design creation from the first project specifications. It covers register handling, IP and connectivity insertion at RTL, UPF and SDC file generation right to logic synthesis. As part of the generation process of RTL and design collaterals, basic… Read More

RTL Design Restructuring Explained
by Daniel Payne on 09-22-2016 at 4:00 pm

Modern SoC designs can use billions of transistors where transistors are grouped into gates, then gates grouped into cells, then cells grouped into blocks, blocks grouped into modules, and so on, creating a complex hierarchy. What a front-end designer conceives of logically for a hierarchy will differ from how an optimized physical… Read More
