Silicon Perspective Corp.

Silicon virtual prototypes


Founded 1996
They offered full-chip silicon virtual prototypes that provided design closure throughout the design cycle. Silicon Perspective served application specific integrated circuits (ASIC), customer owned tooling (COT), and system on chip (SoC) marketplaces.

First Encounter: optimized final placement files were generated at both chip and block level for detailed routing by the customer’s or ASIC vendor’s existing router.

Partition Magic provided an environment for seamless chip and block level floorplanning and constraint passing, as well as chip and block level timing closure. Each independently implemented block can be inserted back in at the top-level, and then flattened to do full chip timing analysis.
