Abstract: There are already a huge number of problems for silicon designers and it is likely to just get worse. Many of these problems are technical associated with shrinking geometries and increasing architecture complexities, but there are a significant number that seem to be caused by procedurally related mistakes and issues. Many of the technical problems are solved and re-solved on a piecemeal basis, focusing on local optimizations of small design-space problems. Unfortunately, many of these local solutions really…
