ShareCG: ASICs .. the Book

Chapter  Index ] [ Next page ]


Engineers used to prototype systems to check their designs, often using a breadboard with connector holes, allowing them to plug in ICs and wires. Breadboarding was feasible when it was possible to construct systems from a few off-the-shelf TTL parts. It is impractical for prototyping an ASIC. Instead most ASIC design engineers turn to simulation as the modern equivalent of breadboarding.
