 Design Submission
On the completion of the design verification and simulation for the circuit, the designsubmission package is assembled. This package must pass through a design acceptancereview before the array vendor will accept it.The requirement of design submission is specific - provide the array vendor withsufficient information to be able to evaluate the design, reproduce the simulation on theirown internal systems, place and route the circuit, and produce Back-Annotatedsimulations that meet the customer's requirements.Design submission requirements vary widely in their specific forms and supplementalmaterial. As an added support feature, AMCC created AMCCSUBMIT - a designsubmission documentation program that prompts for design validation questions and forinformation required to document submitted simulation files. To better discuss thisprocess, the following is the current AMCC design submission document, referencingAMCCSUMBIT and the validation questions.Regardless of the forms it may take or be required to be in, the same basic information isrequired for any design submission. Variations occur when the array vendor is contractedto perform some or all of the design process to the customer's specifications.
Case Study: AMCC Design Submission
Submitting a Circuit Design to AMCC (1990)
The following document has been designed to ensure the AMCC customer, of asuccessful transition from concept to finished part. It is a summary of the items requiredfor the submission of a BiCMOS or bipolar array-based circuit design to AMCC when:
the schematic capture and simulation vector generation has been performed by thecustomer;
the design entry is via a description language or netlist and simulation vectorgeneration has been performed by the customer.
The items described herein must be submitted to AMCC for use in the acceptance designreview prior to committing the design to layout. These are the critical informationtransfers which, if not completed, may delay the acceptance of the circuit.Schematics are to be prepared following AMCC schematic conventions. Refer to thedesign manual for further information. Sections provide a detailed description of theAMCC rules for both EWS-generated and non-EWS-generated schematics.A design cannot be processed without the required test vectors. Functional simulation andat-speed simulation or timing verification are required prior to releasing a design tolayout. Parametric simulation may also be required. AC Tests are optional. Forinformation on the test vector requirements and simulation procedures, refer to VolumeII, Section 4, "Vector Submission Rules and Guidelines".
AMCC Array Design Submission With AMCCSUBMIT
 AMCCSUBMIT must be run and the questions answered. It will produce asummary of the documentation required for a successful design submission.Where information is requested that is not available due to the type of designsubmission and the contract, indicate why the information is not being supplied.
AMCC Assigned Circuit Name (required identification)
 When AMCC has received a purchase order for a circuit, AMCC assigns a codename (a.k.a circuit name, product name) to protect the proprietary nature of thecircuit. This code name should appear on the submission document and on allhardcopy documents as a single point of reference. It should be attached to theschematic chip macro as the PRODUCT_NAME parameter.If no such name assignment exists, use the first 4-6 letters of the company nameas the code name ID.
AMCC Assigned DEVICE_NUMBER [may use default]
Assigned with the PRODUCT_NAME, the DEVICE_NUMBER serves toidentify the individual circuit. It may be defaulted if no number has beenassigned.
Array Series and Specific Array
 Clearly identify which array family and which array within that family is the one usedfor this design. The selection should match the chip macro identification.
Macro Library Version (required identification)
The macro library: release version number is on the label of the release media and onthe upper right hand corner of the chip macros. The version used for the drawings andall execution files must be supplied on the submission checklist. Designers shouldalways verify that they have the latest version of a library immediately prior tobeginning schematic capture.
MacroMatrix Release Version
The MacroMatrix: release number may vary from the library release. Supply thisnumber on the checklist.
EWS System Operating System and Software Version
 AMCC-system release compatibility is defined in the Operation and Installation sectionof the AMCC Design Manual and is the minimum release level that is compatible withthe AMCC MacroMatrix package. Where a CAD/CAE software package is available onseveral platforms, that information is also clearly defined.
Index file for Floppy Disks; Tapes (required)
Each floppy disk (tape) submitted must contain its own text index file (read.me) listingall files contained on that disk (tape), with a description of each file. Each disk (tape)should be clearly labeled as to its name and contents. All file names should be
