A Static Rule Checker for NMOS and CMOS VLSI Circuits is described. MOSSTAT makes a number of different static rule checks on a circuit. These checks help the user to detect and isolate errors such as improper network connectivity or invalid transistor sizes, and can be run interactively to allow for orderly execution each rule check. The results are stored in a data base. MOSSTAT provides a simple query language that allows the user to selectively retrieve this information from the data base. Transistors are classified according to their type and function. Logic gates are also classified according to their style. The results of these analyses are useful in isolating possible circuit design problems.
