How many designs can you fit on a die?

Right from the start I realised that 10 square mm was going to be a huge space for first timers like myself. This has led to building a system of tools that help to combine many small designs into 1 shuttle submission to save valuable silicon real estate.

I'm now trying to increase the number of designs on a die by an order of magnitude, to further lower the barrier to entry for silicon design and experimentation.
