An ASIC is an application specific integrated circuit, which is usually designed to cover a need of functionality or performance (speed, power consumption, dimensions, etc.) that cannot be achieved by a combination of preexistent integrated circuits. The design of an ASIC implies the interoperability of complex tools. In the figure, it can be observed a simplified flow for a low power mixed-signal ASIC design, where both the digital and analog flow will converge via open access.
