A system on chip (SoC) library for MOSIS scalable CMOS rules has been developed It is intended for use with Synopsys and Cadence Design Systems electronic design automation tools. Students can also use layout tools for semi-custom designs and insert them with the proposed design flow. Scalable submicron rules are used for the cell library, allowing it to be used for several AMI and TSMC technologies. Consequently, it is possible to fabricate student projects as well as do research in system on chip design through the MOSIS educational program. All steps in the design flow are fully automated with scripts and have been tested successfully in a large VLSI design class at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
