1. Pre-Defined Targets#

The following are examples are pre-built targets that come with SiliconCompiler which you can use for your own builds. These are typically “demo” targets which use a specific combination of predefined pdk, library, flow and more configurations.

1.2. asic_demo#

This target is intended for testing purposes only, to verify that SiliconCompiler is installed and configured correctly.
