Silicon Compiler Technology that Enabled Cirrus Logic to Become a Fabless Semiconductor Company
This talk presents the story of how Storage/Logic Array (SLA) invented in Computer Systems Lab (CSL) of MIT became the basis of a Silicon Complier that enabled system designers to design complex application specific Systems on a Chip (SoC) stating from early 80’s at Cirrus Logic. Ability to compile masks for multiple fabs using the same high level design allowed the company to source wafers from where ever they were available and allowed Cirrus Logic to become one of the first successful fabless semiconductor companies.
