Description

Objective: The overall objective of the CVT project is to implement an integrated CAD system to be used by systems designers, with particular reference to the requirements of the telecommunications field.

Achievements:

General information: From the user point of view, the main features required in the system are:
- to be simple, that is easily accessed by system designer
- to fast and sure, providing system designers with a way to go from high level descriptions to silicon implementations either automatically (when possible) or with the help of an intelligent assistant suggesting solutions providing tools and verifying and comparing results.
The system proposed has a modular structure for the following reasons:
- it has to take advantage of the existing tools;
- it has to be flexible, to cope with the foreseen evolution during the time of design methodologies, application tools and supporting hardware;
- it has to be multi-user, leaving to each designer (or company) the opportunity to assemble the system in the way which best suits his (or its) needs and constraints.
Summarizing, the CVT project is aiming at the following main objectives:
- to define and implement the kernel of the integrated CAD system that is the design data base system and the user interface;
- to originate a complete set of tools for description, analysis and synthesis,
-to aid the designer during the architectural design phase, going from the initial specifications to floor plans (this is a key item towards the VLSI devices design, establishing a link between the two previously separated worlds of system designers and circuit designers);
-to define a set of coherent criteria for designing complex fault-tolerant possibly self-repairing architectures, easy to test with the aid of functional test generators;
- to develop symbolic layout tools, which are the VLSI way to layout (as a matter of fact, from one side they provide the circuit designer with an intermediate, easy to use description of the masks, and from the other side they make easier the task of developing tools for automatic placement and routing);
- to provide device models helping both, the technologists to produce the device structures which best suits the TLC application needs, and the circuit designers to obtain effective simulators for circuits manufactured using advanced VLSI technologies;
- to start the work on knowledge based system, which if successful and when successfully integrated with the previously defined system, will give rise to a second generation of integrated CAD systems.
Expected deliverables:
The kernel of an integrated CAD system (user interface and data base management system) plus a set of advanced CAD tools mainly in the areas of designat system level, testing, symbolic layout and device modelling.
