- Design Environment
SUE is a
graphical environment that allows users to enter, visualize, and
control large, complex chip designs. SUE is the first tool to combine
HDL-based functional designs with structural design. SUE understands
everything from Verilog down to the operation and physical placement
of transistors and wires.
user to generate data paths from a schematic view, and back annotate
accurate timing information onto the schematic in seconds. DPC can
place custom-style "bit slice" data paths minimizing wire lengths
for high performance, and can even include control logic, all using
your existing standard cell library.
MAX is an extremely fast, industrial strength, full-custom layout
editor with the added benefit of a complete Tcl/Tk interface and
API. MAX comes with continuous DRC, connectivity tracing, schematic
cross-probing, wiring tool, extraction, schematic-driven layout,
and more. MAX reads and writes GDSII and LEF/DEF.
On-Line Interactive MAX/MAX-LS Tutorial
Micro Magic's interactive design and layout network. Micro Magic Tools
allow interactive design flow with all major systems.
MAX-LS seamlessly integrates the schematic capture of SUE with
the MAX layout editor to provide true, schematic-driven physical
layout. It includes interactive cell generation based on LVS and
DRC correct layout, and can handle the largest SoC IC design databases.
Its GDSII output can go directly to mask composition products for
Cell Compiler (MCC) allows users to easily build their own generators
for SRAM's, DRAM's, ROM's, pad rings or any other regular or semi-regular
structure, in just minutes. Verilog, HSPICE, critical path netlists,
and timing models can all be generated automatically.
