A general trend in computers today is to increase the complexity of architectures along with the increasing potential of implementation technologies. The consequences of this complexity are increased design time, more design errors, inconsistent implementations, and the delay of single chip implementation (Patterson and Ditzel, 1980). The Reduced(More)
The artwork of integrated circuit designs is usually available in the form of hierarchical specification, in which each cell is made up of geometric primitives and references to other cells. Such a representation captures structure and repetition in the layout. As the realizable device count of integrated circuits increases with every passing year there is(More)
