pp. 18-24
Dave Palmer, Sandia National Laboratories
John Wisniewski, Sandia National Laboratories
Over the last eighteen months, Sandia National Laboratories has converted its IC design facility from a mainframe to a workstationenvironment. Although workstations were advertised as turnkey systems, augmentation of vendor software with Sandia-developedsoftware greatly enhanced Sandia's specific IC design capabilities. This article examines advantages of the workstation approachfor sophisticated CAD tool users, discussing complete hardware, software, and networking capacities and capabilities.
