Version 6 of the popular Magic interactive VLSI layout system gathers together the work of many people at several institutions since Magic version 4 was released from Berkeley on the 1986 VLSI Tools tape. This release also includes Stanford's IRSIM program, a simulator designed to work interactively with Magic. This tape includes Magic and IRSIM only; you may want to obtain other tools by ordering the 1986 VLSI Tools tape. This version includes many improvements. Routing improvements include a new global router, a gate-array router, and an interactive maze router. Extraction has been improved with accurate resistance extraction. Magic's representation of contacts has been improved to work better with technologies that have stacked contacts. Bugs have been fixed, and the system has been ported to many new machines.
