Synopsys provided ACS commands, and they say these command are

useful. But as I know no company use the ACS commands, are your

company uses these commands?

ACS needs lots of cpus, otherwise it's no value, because it's "distrubuted synthesis", the acs engine partition big design into small pieces, and synthesis them concurrently in many cpus, that's why it can handle large designs and improve runtime.

Which lab of ALi it is used in? And what is the vision name & number of DC for supporting the ACS command?

Thanks.

I have found a training manual about ACS.
It's in 1999 written by synopsys and you can download it from EDAboard.
Ali corporation use ACS 2004.06 version to synthesis a small design "PBIU".

I have try it, but it seem not very good, unless you know little about the dc script. I prefer take control by myself.

There are many papers on SNUG to describe the advantage of using ACS. But I have never tried it.

ACS (Automated Chip Synthesis) command is used in large designs. This basically performs synthesis by partitioning the deisgn (as per our inputs). It accepts top level constraints but interprets and applies them properly for different partitions automatically. The synthesis of different partitions is launched parallely inorder to speed up the computations.
