Design Synthesis and Silicon Compilation
November/December 1990 (vol. 7 no. 6)
pp. 8-23

An overview is given of silicon compilation, which involves translating a high-level design description into layout. Levels of compilers are differentiated, and compilation is shown as a process of synthesis coupled with physical design at each level. The major tasks involved at each level are described, and examples are given to illustrate them. A typical design system based on synthesis and silicon compilation is described.
