ASIC Libraries

Application summary: Generic symbol library (gates, regs, muxes) and verilog behavior models for the library. Designs can be done with generic library and simulated in verilog. Vendor specific designs can then be ported from the generic design using hierarchical calls from generic primitives to the equivalent vendor primitives. This method allows a design to be simulated and then ported to different vendors without using synthesis.
