Low cost, yet very powerful commercial ASIC design tools are available from Tanner Research, Inc. in Pasadena, CA. These products are used by industry and universities alike. Tanner's products are nominally priced at $995 per program, with a combined package named L-Edit Pro available for $3,495 on the PC. Universities are offered a 75% discount. Here is a list of their current programs:
L-EditTM : A full-custom layout editor with CIF and GDSII input/output. Features a 32-bit coordinate space, all-angle geometry, unlimited hierarchy and number of layers. The L-Edit Pro package includes L-Edit/DRC for design rule checking, L-Edit/SPR for automatic standard cell placement and routing, L-Edit/Extract for extracting transistors, capacitors, resistors and generic devices for SPICE-level simulation or comparison to a schematic and LVS ,a netlist comparison tool for topological and parametrical verification. Optional layout libraries are also available. T-Spice: Circuit level simulator (See item 41 for detail GateSimTM : Gate-level simulator. A full array of technology mapping libraries are also available.Products are available for the PC, Macintosh, Sun and Hp UNIX platforms.
