VLSI Design and Simulation

I spent about five years working on compiler like tools for designing integrated circuits, first at Synopsys where I worked on the HDL Compiler for logic synthesis and then at Quickturn, where I was a project lead and one of the principle implementors of a hardware accelerated behavioral Verilog simulator.

The industry involved in creating software for chip design and simulation is refered to as the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry. This web page includes links to material from my days laboring in that particular vinyard.
