Creating Chip Generators Using Genesis2


What are chip generators?

In a nutshell...
The Chip Generator (CG) is a design system for automatically producing custom heterogeneous CMP chips for specific applications.
Tell me more...
Because of technology scaling, power dissipation is today’s major performance limiter. Moreover, the traditional way to achieve power efficiency, application-specific designs, is prohibitively expensive. These power and cost issues necessitate rethinking digital design. To reduce design costs, we need to stop building chip instances, and start making chip generators instead. Domain-specific chip generators are templates that codify designer knowledge and design trade-offs to create different application-optimized chips.
I really want to understand...
