Place and Route ( Netlist to GDSII Design Flow)

"Unlock the Magic of Chip Design: Master the Art of Netlist to GDSII Transformation in the Place and Route Universe."

Instructor: ChipEdge LearningLanguage: English

About the course


Place and Route (Netlist to GDS-II Design Flow) is a comprehensive course that teaches the process of converting a netlist into a physical layout using industry-standard tools. This course covers the entire design flow, from the initial placement of gates and macros to the final routing of interconnects. Students will gain a deep understanding of the different algorithms and techniques involved in achieving optimal placement and efficient routing.

Key Highlights:

  • In-depth coverage of place and route techniques
  • Hands-on experience with industry-standard tools
  • Optimization strategies for achieving high-quality layouts
  • Understanding the impact of various design constraints

What you will learn:

  • Netlist to Placement:
    This module focuses on the initial placement of gates and macros using advanced algorithms. Students will learn how to optimize for area, wirelength, delay, and other metrics. Techniques for handling various design constraints will also be discussed.
  • Placement to Routing:
    In this module, students will learn how to convert the placement solution into a routing solution. Topics include global and detailed routing, congestion estimation, routing congestion-driven placement, and more.
  • Post-Route Optimization:
    Here, students will explore techniques for improving the final routing solution. Topics covered include clock tree synthesis, power optimization, shielding, buffering, and design rule checks.
  • Final Steps:
    In this module, students will learn about the remaining steps in the design flow, such as parasitic extraction, timing analysis, and validation of the final layout. Students will gain the necessary skills to prepare the design for manufacturing.
