HIPE : Hierarchical Instance Parameter Editing of parameterized modules in analog IC design

  • The limited interfaces of today's IC design environments for editing PCell parameters hinder a solid advancement towards more complex analog PCell modules. This paper presents Hierarchical Instance Parameter Editing (HIPE), a highly flexible concept for the customization of PCell sub-instances. Introducing a new type of parameter, HIPE facilitates the dynamic creation of multi-level editing forms reflecting the actual contents of a PCell instance. This approach greatly improves a PCell's ease-of-use, substantially simplifies PCell development, and allows for a hierarchical execution of parameter validation callbacks. Our HIPE implementation has been integrated into a professional PCell development tool and represents a key enabling technology for upcoming generations of high-level hierarchical PCells.
