  • Patent number: 7096451
    Abstract: A method, system and program product implementing storage of a (power or ground) mesh plane file using a multiple line shape, possibly with the storage of lines also, to reduce file size. In addition, the invention implements an activate-substantial-portion-and-remove technique to generate mesh planes rather than the conventional additive approach, which improves the speed of designing the IC carriers. A resulting mesh plane design file may be as much as half the size of a file generated using the conventional line-by-line and storage approaches.

  • Patent number: 4760289
    Abstract: A masterslice cell wireable to form any of a selected book set of two level differential cascode current switch basic circuits. Twenty percent increased performance is provided as compared with ECL masterslice circuits running at the same power. In spite of increased wire due to differential logic, and potential increased complexity in design software, the invention is actually readily adaptable to existing masterslice design systems.
