Abstract:

The architecture and structures used by the MacPitts silicon compiler to design integrated circuits are described, and the capabilities and limitations of the compiler are discussed. The performance of several combinational and pipeline adders designed by MacPitts and a hand-crafted pipeline adder are compared. Several different MacPitts design errors are documented. Tutorial material is presented to aid in using the MacPitts interpreter and to illustrate timing analysis of MacPitts-designed circuits using the program Crystal. Keywords include VLSI Design MacPitts silicon compiler Pipeline adder Block carry look ahead addition Data-Path and Weinberger Array.
