I often wonder whether designers plan out well in advance their ECO methodology and strategy for a project. For instance, how do they determine how many spare gates to add, what type, where to place them, how to connect them. Or, what is the impact of RTL coding style, aggressive design optimization, and hierarchy ungrouping on ECO predictability
We recently conducted a Webinar on this exact topic based on customer experience, and would like share these useful tips and recommendations with you to increase ECO predictability in your flow. The Webinar is titled: "Best Practices and Considerations for Accelerating Implementation of Pre-Mask and Post-Mask ECO".
