ABSTRACT
A framework of constraint propagation is described that supports the least-commitment strategy of design. This is implemented in an object-oriented IC design. This resulting system incrementally propagates design characteristics whenever they become available and checks for design specification violations. By managing the interaction among bottom-up characteristics and top-down specifications, constraint propagation provides a powerful aid in IC design.
