ABSTRACT
Our ability to fabricate complex VLSI chips is outrunning our ability to design them. To reduce the design time for complexchips we are creating an expert design assistant?programs that automate as many of the design tasks as possible while allowingthe human designer to control the synthesis process. A series of programs translates an algorithm into a chip layout. Someprograms are expert systems while others use traditional algorithms. Our early results lead us to believe that a knowledge-basedexpert system is an appropriate tool for bridging the gap between logical and physical design.
