In this paper, we describe a project to enhance manufacturability at several abstraction levels. The project targets several different abstraction levels seen through a design flow targeting regular approaches. The project intends to verify the role of applying regularity at different levels compared to a golden design flow used as reference. The SYNAPTIC project will span for three years involving eight different institutions, and this paper describes the intended goals.
