Some "real life" work: VLSI = Very Large Source of Income

Reuven Bar-Yehuda

1986-1988 Project
Bar-Yehuda, R., J. A. Feldman, R. Y. Pinter and S. Wimer.
Developed programs for Layouts of VLSI circuits (CMOS technology). The Programs are already in practical use at one of IBM laboratory (Austin Tx. USA) for automatic cell generation. The resulting layouts compete very well with manual layouts done by professional designers. The input to this tool describes the topology of CMOS circuit. The output is the final layout. It has been used to generate a complete library from scratch. Also, there are some real chips (SJ1 family) in this laboratory for which the random logic parts are the result of our tool. These tools were used in the design of the IBM RS/6000 processor.
