LONDON Pulsic Ltd. (Bristol, England) has produced an upgrade to its Unity physical design tool. Unity 2009.1 features OpenAccess core support and flow-routing for efficient automated bus routing.
UniRoute is part of Unity, a custom EDA tool for the physical design of high volume ICs. Unity combines three other key components; Uniplan for hierarchical floorplanning, UniPlace for placement of circuit elements and UniEdit to provide timing, signal integrity, engineering change orders and design for manufacturing functionality
"We believe designers will derive huge time savings from our new flow-routing option. Instead of having to either keep a bus together or manually splitting a bus, flow-routing performs the whole task automatically and at the same time, under the control of the designer," said Mark Waller, vice president of research and development for Pulsic, in a statement.
