This paper proposes a way to compile a silicon layout directly from synchronous logic specification. The motivation for introducing compilation into the silicon world comes from its extreme success in the software world. As we see silicon area increasing and circuit complexity increasing, we might feel much in common with the early day programmers who faced increasing memory availability along with increasing program complexity.
