VLSI Physical Design: From Graph Partitioning to Timing Closure

By Jens Lienig, Igor L. Markov

Design and optimization of built-in circuits are necessary to the construction of latest semiconductor chips, and actual optimizations have gotten extra in demand because of semiconductor scaling. smooth chip layout has develop into so advanced that it's mostly played by means of really expert software program, that's usually up to date to deal with advances in semiconductor applied sciences and elevated challenge complexities. A consumer of such software program wishes a high-level realizing of the underlying mathematical versions and algorithms. however, a developer of such software program should have a prepared realizing of computing device technology elements, together with algorithmic functionality bottlenecks and the way quite a few algorithms function and have interaction. VLSI actual layout: From Graph Partitioning to Timing Closure introduces and compares algorithms which are used through the actual layout part of integrated-circuit layout, in which a geometrical chip structure is produced ranging from an summary circuit layout. The emphasis is on crucial and basic strategies, starting from hypergraph partitioning and circuit placement to timing closure.
