AMD AMD's 'Zacate' built with standard EDA tools

Not using in-house Electronic Design Automation tools for Zacate.

SAN FRANCISCO—Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) detailed the technical specifications of the first of its chips known as an "accelerated processor unit" (APU)—combining microprocessor cores with graphics—at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) here Tuesday (Feb. 22).

Among other revelations, AMD Fellow Dennis Foley said the design was synthesized entirely using industry standard place-and-route tools, something he described as unique. "There are no special tricks used [for example] for the floating point unit in the x86 core," Foley said.
