Abstract

This paper presents a frame-based scheme for managing VLSI CAD data. The knowledge base for VLSI CAD is composed of a collection of design frames. The framework and inheritance algorithms are integrated into a frame manager (FAME). FAME has clear advantages over a relational schema in terms of speed, efficiency, and flexibility. The program is coded in C language and runs on a VAX-11/780 computer.
