Floorplanning

Aprisa provides an easy-to-use floor-planner that enables fast analysis of design hierarchy. Automation of many of the traditionally manual tasks such as manual macro placement and blockage creation helps the designers converge on an optimal floor-plan much faster. Common placement, routing, and timing engines mean good correlation for congestion and timing from floorplanning stage all the way through the final routing stage.

The rich feature set includes:

  • Channeled and channel-less floorplans, or a mix of both
  • Rectilinear floorplans
  • Multiple libraries, and multi-height standard cells
  • Parametric multit-hreaded routing for power/ground grid creation
  • Automatic placement blockage generator
  • Automatic macro placer with grouping and legalization capabilities
  • Pin optimization and legalization
  • Pad ring placement
  • Hierarchical fly line analysis
  • Logical hierarchy browser and cross-probing of logical modules to layout
