Custom Chip/Card Design System

by A. M. Barone, J. K. Morrell
The Custom Chip/Card Design System (CCDS) is a set of software applications, tied together via a common data interchange, that is used for the design, analysis, and checking of custom electronic circuits. CCDS is intended to unite the separate electrical, logical, and physical design phases into a single design process. The underlying principle of the system rests on the idea of describing the product as a generalized network, with multiple overlapping views that correspond to the different design phases. In addition to the applications contained within CCDS, there are also links to other software tools for such things as circuit simulation.
