8/8/2002   Post a comment
The spiraling expense and design time associated with chips fabricated in ever-shrinking design technologies is impacting how and when a chip designer hands off a design to the system designer. Tera Systems' Mark Miller discusses the pros and cons of RTL and gate-level handoff and how both require early awareness of the implications of the design's micro architecture along with high-quality RTL code.
