<p>With larger chip images and increasingly aggressive technologies, key design processes must interoperate. PDS, a physical-synthesis system, accomplishes technology closure through interacting processes of logic optimization, placement, timing, clock insertion, and routing, all using a common infrastructure with robust variable-accuracy analysis abstractions.</p>
