Integrated Circuit (IC) Design has always been a challenge to designers.There are two approaches that can be used to draft architecture of an integrated circuit which are the old approach of using Custom and a new one using ASIC.ASIC has been preferred by IC designers as it manipulates liberty files to provide suggestion on the architecture design faster than the Custom approach that relies on tailor-made designs. Tailor-made designs are difficult to draft and not flexible nor scalable.In fact, the time required for an IC to be build based on Custom design is longer than the one using ASIC.Furthermore, ASIC works on a higher-level of the IC Design in which liberty libraries can be sought to find suitable cells for the IC.However, these liberty libraries are huge that it is quite impossible to browse through manually for intensive comparisons to be made.This has been the obstacle in the ASIC design.Therefore, we proposed a system that stores these liberty libraries as a database and is able to intelligently suggest possible candidate components for IC design sought by the system user.This is a new and novel system that would benefit all designers in the IC design field.
