This book carefully details design tools and techniques for high-performance ASIC design. Using these techniques, the performance of ASIC designs can be improved by two to three times. Important topics include: Improving performance through microarchitecture; Timing-driven floorplanning; Controlling and exploiting clock skew; High performance latch-based design in an ASIC methodology; Automatically identifying and synthesizing complex logic gates; Automated cell sizing to increase performance and reduce power; Controlling process variation.These techniques are illustrated by designs running two to three times the speed of typical ASICs in the same process generation.Chapter 7 examines an automated approach to changing flip-flop based gate netlists to use latches, in a standard cell ASIC flow ...
