This paper presents a system which uses the adaptive simulated annealing algorithm to optimize placement of modules (e.g. transistors or subcircuits) and (global) routing between these modules. This is achieved through user-specified performance constraints, precomputed sensitivities of the nodes in the circuit and modeling of substrate effects between(More)
Several types of parameters p influence the behaviour of electronic circuits and have to be taken into account when optimizing appropriate performance functions f(p): design parameters x, manufacturing process parameters s, and operating parameters θ. The performance functions f(p) and the constraints c(p) can be costly to evaluate and are subject to noise.(More)
