    Dear all,

    From a CS background, I have some experience with HDL and FPGA designs. However, I have to design a VLSI arithmetic circuit and I am not aware of the right design automation tools. As with Xilinx tools, I have to find out the frequency, area and power consumption. I this possible? are there any available free to download tools?

    Cheers
    Omar

    Do you have a specific process that you are targeting? Do you have standard cells for that process? Do you simulation models for that process?
