This paper describes the ALGIC silicon compiler system for digital signal processing applications. Starting from a structural and functional description of a digital VLSI circuit, ALGIC generates automatically the corresponding layout in a full-custom design style. The main components of ALGIC are a system monitor module, a parametrisable macro-cell generator, an appropriate floorplanner giving a 100% routing solution and a block-oriented timing verifier. An essential feature of the system is the high degree of integration between all the program modules achieved using the concept of abstract data types
