SRAM Compiler uses predefined building blocks or leaf cells and connectivity information to compile SRAMs of user-specified size. In this paper, a high-speed embedded SRAM Compiler is described. It is based on TSMC's 0.5 ?m CMOS process. It can compile both single-port and dual-port SRAMs. SRAM is a completely synchronous architecture with a maximal capacity 16k* 64=1Mb bits. The compiler generates the layout, behavioral level models, schematic symbols, and a layout abstraction to place and route. The program in Skill language can automatically complete the creation of all the models in different levels. The SRAM Compiler has a friendly user interface. Users can specify the necessary parameters and then get all the results. The SRAM Compiler can be easily integrated into Cadence and other CAD frameworks.
