• #### Virtuosity: 10 Things I Learned in March by Browsing Cadence Online Support

Topics in March include advanced analysis in ADE GXL, taking advantage of lots of features for doing statistical analysis in ADE XL, defining bindkeys in ADE L (yes, you can do that!), plus a variety of useful details in the areas of routing and advanced custom layout. Enjoy! Application Notes 1. Design...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Introduction to Classes -- Part 5

In the previous SKILL for the Skilled postings, we looked at a pretty good algorithm for solving the Sudoku puzzle. This algorithm is able to find at least one solution of the puzzle if one exists, and is able to detect that no solution exists if that is in fact the case. In this article we look at a...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Introduction to Classes -- Part 4

In several previous postings we introduced the problem of solving the sudoku puzzle. In Part 1 , we saw the rules of sudoku and a brief introduction to the SKILL++ Object System. In Part 2 , we started solving the problem top-down by implementing the top level function SkuSolve and agreeing to fill in...

• #### A Moment to Mourn -- John McCarthy, Father of Lisp

Here lies a Lisper Uninterned from this mortal package Yet not gc'd While we retain pointers to his memory [Author unknown] Last week (October 23rd, 2011 or 24th depending on which source you read) we lost Dr. John McCarthy, one of the great contributors to the field of computer science. I'd...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Introduction to Classes -- Part 3

In the previous posting Introduction to Classes -- Part 2 we saw the high level function for initializing, solving, and displaying the sudoku puzzle. (defun SkuSolve (partial_solution) (let ((sudoku (SkuInitialize (SkuNew) partial_solution))) (printf "starting with: \n%s\n" (SkuPrint sudoku...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Introduction to Classes -- Part 1

In the previous couple of SKILL for the Skilled postings, we looked at some of the features of SKILL++. In fact, we saw local functions, higher-order functions, and lexical scoping. Still another set of features of SKILL++ is called the SKILL++ Object System . This system provides a standardized way...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Virtuoso Applications of SKILL++

In this posting, I continue looking at applications of SKILL++. In particular, I'll also discuss how to create functions that hold onto their state. I'll use these functions to implement multiple-criteria (cascading) sort predicates. I'll look at ways to sort layout pins counter-clockwise...

• #### Virtuoso IC 5.1.41 Was Good but Virtuoso IC 6.1 is Better

With the recent release of unified custom/analog flow that is based on the latest version of the Virtuoso IC 6.1.5 technologies (see Virtuoso IC 6.1.5 press release here ), it is time to revisit the strengths of Virtuoso IC 6.1 platform and find out how new capabilities enable designers with the productivity...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: Continued Introduction to SKILL++

In my previous posting , which provided an introduction to SKILL++, I showed a simple but powerful design hierarchy descent function that has various potential uses. The function is called walkCvHier . As a reminder, here is the SKILL++ code again. 1.1: (defun walkCvHier (cv consume) 1.2: (foreach inst...

• #### SKILL for the Skilled: What is SKILL++?

The way SKILL++ deals with functions is a bit different than the way traditional SKILL deals with them. In this posting I'd like to show how to implement a design hierarchy traversal engine in SKILL++ and use it as an introduction to SKILL++. What is SKILL++? SKILL++ is a subset of the SKILL language...
