Pulsic has announced a place-and-route implementation solution that gives designers easy-to-use, guided flows to automatically implement precise, hand-crafted quality design layouts with the highest routing completion and accuracy on the market, said the company. The Pulsic Implementation Solution includes the Unity Analog Router, Unity Custom Digital Router and Unity Custom Digital Placer that according to Pulsic provides automation where needed to deliver high-quality, efficient, flexible and fast results.

The Unity Analog Router provides layout designers with an intuitive flow that enables them to complete routing very quickly, using a style that mimics a manual transistor layout approach, described the company. It incorporates analog-specific features that address the unique needs of analog routing. Results are equivalent to hand-crafted results, with 100 percent routing completion that is design rule check/ layout vs. schematic (DRC/LVS) correct.

It features proprietary geometry recognition algorithms that use the topology of transistors and resistors, including relevant groupings, to complete routing, so that minimal constraint set-up and tool knowledge is required. It also supports analog-specific routing functions such as mirrors, symmetry, common centroid and current density requirements. It likewise provides designer-selected level of automation required to complete routing, where automation can be automatic or interactive. In addition, it has online DRC feature checks and corrects any DRC violations, with support for native OpenAcess format or built-in DFII/cdba interface with Cadence.

The Unity Custom Digital Router is composed of a tightly integrated suite of shape-based routing technologies. It encompasses hundreds of specialized utilities that work together simply and seamlessly on the same shape-based data model to give custom digital design teams precise, handcrafted quality results with automated speed, boasted Pulsic. The Unity Custom Digital Router model has been engineered to work with the latest complex process rules (28nm and below) and makes efficient use of available area, even for areas with extreme aspect ratios or highly congested areas. By automating advanced custom routing functions, Unity Custom Digital Router delivers greater productivity. Guided flows and thematic GUI enable fast adoption and ease of use, added the company.
