Congestion Minimization in Modern Placement Circuits
Integrated Circuits and Systems, pp. 135-163, 2007.
In this chapter, we propose a placement tool called Dragon which deploys hierarchical techniques to place large-scale mixed size designs that may contain thousand of macro blocks and millions of standard cells [1–3]. Min-cut-based top-down approach is taken to handle the large complexity of designs and simulated annealing is used to min...More
