A general methodology flowchart for the chip design process is shown in Fig. 10.1 . This flowchart illustrates the major steps that must be performed to transform the chip design into a manufacturable chip. (In practice, many steps are overlapped to speed up the process and are iterated as the design is altered or optimized. For simplicity, linear processing of the traditional methodology is assumed for this discussion.)
