ORGANIZING AND PLANNING THE ASIC DESIGN PROCESS BY MEANS OF A MULTI-AGENT SYSTEM

Jana Blaschke, Christian Sebeke, Wolfgang Rosenstiel

Abstract

Because of constantly improving technologies, the complexity of Integrated Circuits (ICs) is continuously increasing. Consequently IC design becomes continously more challenging and complex. A huge number of different possible design flows exists, delimited by different constraints. The design flow dynamically changes as recursions between design tasks occur. An approach that allows a fast and efficient ASIC design and that can deal with this huge complexity and dynamics is needed. Therefore we propose a methodology based on a multi-agent simulation combined with global and local scheduling techniques to construct a time-dependent, detailed model of the ASIC design process, which permits an extensive analysis and efficient organization.
