Hi,

   Can u tell me about front end and back end design in VLSI and also please tell me about different tools used in front end and back end design process.

Atleast give me links from where i can get it.

Thanks and regards,
sandy

Tasks performed by Back End VLSI design
engineers are :
Mask generation.
Wafer processing.
Packaging.
Testing.
Delivery of samples.
Final mass production.
In Back End VLSI Design process IC
manufacturer (foundry) handles most Back End tasks.



In Front-End VLSI Design process, a design engineer performs all the aspects of design before handing the design over to a foundry for manufacture in GDSII (Graphic Design System II) format.




The last step of  Front End VLSI design is the first step of  Back End VLSI design.

FRONT END DESIGN INCLUDES

VHDL/VERILOG ENTRY
SIMULATOR-MODEL SIM
SYNTHESISER-LEONARDO-SPECTRUM TOOL OUTPUT IS
RTL DESCRIPTION

BACK END INCLUDES

RTL DESCRIPTION INPUT TO FLOORPLANNING TOOL
O/P IS I/P TO PLACEMENT TOOL
O/P IS I/P TO ROUTING TOOL
O/P IS I/P TO LAYOUT TOOL (CADENCE-VIRTUSO)
FINAL O/P IS IN GDS II FORMAT
GDS FORMAT IS I/P TO FOUNTRY THAT IS FOR
PHYSICAL MANUFACTURING OF IC
