  • Patent number: 9064063
    Abstract: Disclosed encompasses method, system, computer program product for implementing interactive checking of constraints. Various embodiments bridge schematic design environment and layout environment with a binder mapping process and utilize connectivity information from the schematic design to identify constraint violations early in the physical design stage. The method identifies or creates a layout and identifies or generates an object for a modification process. The method may take snapshot(s) of the design database or may use one or more logs for restoring the design database. The method then identifies or creates scratch pad(s) and performs modification process on the object to generate a change. The method uses scratch pad(s) and trigger(s) to perform constraint checking during the modification process to provide interactive feedback in response to the modification process before committing the change to the persistent database.

  • Patent number: 9053289
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and system for visualizing legal locations of edges and dimensions for an object being placed or edited in the layout. During the design process, visual indicators may be provided to the user to indicate the legal locations at which edges of an object may be placed in the layout. Gravitation and/or snapping may be provided automatically identify and/or move the edges to the legal locations. However, the user can control whether and under what circumstances the gravitation and/or snapping will occur. In this way, the designer does not need to manually place the edges of every single object, which is especially helpful for objects that are intended to have an edge at a legal location. Upon a design choice by the designer, the objects can be edited so that an edge does not need to immediately comply with a design rule.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are representative embodiments of methods and apparatus for managing and allocating hardware resources during RTL synthesis. For example, in one exemplary method disclosed herein, an RTL description of a circuit to be implemented in a target architecture is received. The target architecture of this embodiment comprises a fixed number of hardware resources in a class of hardware resources. One or more operator instances are determined from the RTL description received, where at least some of the operator instances are implementable by the hardware resources in the class of hardware resources. In this embodiment, and prior to initially synthesizing the RTL description into a gate-level netlist, assignment information indicative of how the operator instances are to be implemented using the hardware resources in the class of hardware resources is automatically determined. A graphical user interface is also provided that allows a user to view and modify the assignment information.

  • Patent number: 8694943
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and systems for implementing constraint and connectivity aware physical designs. The method or system provides a connectivity-aware environment to implement electronic designs. For example, the method interactively determines whether an electronic design complies with various constraints by using connectivity information in a nearly real-time manner while the electronic design is being created in some embodiments. The method or system uses the connectivity information provided by a connectivity engine or specified by designers to present feedback to a user as to whether a newly created object or a newly modified object complies or violates certain relevant constraints in an interactive manner or in nearly real-time without having to perform such constraints checking in batch mode. The method further enables one to implement electronic designs by using connectivity information without performing extraction on layouts or rebuilding nets.
