vlsi perl scripts

A simple example:

For MEM-BIST logic, you can write a script with perl according certain algorithms. When you want to reuse this logic design in different porject. You only change the setting of perl script. Then it will generate the RTL to your design.

You may use this methodology in your reuseable designs.

The information of Perl language is easy to be found in WWW.

use of perl in vlsi

Hi
First of all, remember that PERL is not a programming language. It is a scripting language. That means, we are writting some scripts in order to automate some things. Starting from simulating a RTL code to executing a physical design algorithms, we can automate every process. If everything is automated, then the complete chip design process will be simplified. So, learing perl like any other software is not good. Scripting languages are mainly aimed at creating environment.

PERL in 24 days is available online. It is a good refernce.
