The results of development and research of real VLSI design subsystem prototype built on the basis of a multi-level hierarchical client-server architecture are given. The aim of this work is by means of practical realization to demonstrate the fact that distributed subsystems on the basis of hierarchical client-server architecture provide more significant VLSI design speed increase than one-level distributed subsystems. During subsystem research, real integrated logic gates were used. To investigate the performance quality of the subsystem, basic schemes containing from 500 to 2000 functional gates were generated with random specification of circuit parameters. Only homogeneous subsystems were used in the research since heterogeneous subsystems gave negative result in the very first experiments. The detailed studies of homogeneous subsystems gave almost positive results, but bottlenecks were also identified, the elimination of which should lead to more significant results in terms of speeding up design process.

Key words: homogeneous, hybrid hierarchical client-server architecture, VLSI, scheme partitioning, placement, routing.
