Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. SKILL is the Lisp-like scripting language and PCell description language used in many EDA software suites by Cadence Design Systems. It was originally put forth in an IEEE paper in 1990. SKILL was originally based on a flavor of Lisp called "Franz Lisp" created at UC Berkeley by the students of Professor Richard J. Fateman. SKILL is not an acronym, it is a name. For trademark reasons Cadence prefers it be capitalized. Franz Lisp and all other flavors of LISP were eventually superseded by an ANSI standard for Lisp called "Common Lisp." Historically, SKILL was known as IL. SKILL was a library of IL functions. The name was originally an initialism for Silicon Compiler Interface Language, pronounced "SKIL," which then morphed into "SKILL," a plain English word that was easier for everyone to remember.'show more
