EDA company Pulsic Ltd has introduced an upgrade to its physical chip design software suite, Unity 2009.1.

Running on OpenAccess, Unity 2009.1 improves dataflow management with a common options format that will run across all projects. This enables design teams to ensure compatibility and improves design set up times.

Additionally, Unity 2009.1 features a new bus routing option, "flow-routing." With flow-routing, a bus will automatically route (flow) around obstacles by splitting and regrouping. Tolerances can be set for obstacle size to optimise layout area.

Mark Waller, VP of Research and Development for Pulsic, explains, "We believe designers will derive huge time savings from our new flow-routing option. Instead of having to either keep a bus together or manually splitting a bus, flow-routing performs the whole task automatically and at the same time, under the control of the designer. With our OA support we have focused on reducing cycle times with other design environments by providing seamless integration."
