We propose a hybrid power model for estimating the power dissipation of a design at the RT-level. This new model combines the advantages of both RT-level and gate-level approaches. We investigate the relationship between steady-state transition power and overall power dissipation. We observe that, statistically, two input sequences causing similar amount of(More)
1 In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach for estimating the switching activities of the internal nodes in logic circuits. The new approach combines the advantages of the simulation-based t e chniques and the probability-based t e chniques. We use the user-specied control sequence for simulation and treat the weakly correlated data inputs using the(More)
In this paper we study the problem of distributing the set of crossings between two regions. A crossing is defined as the intersection of two nets. Three types of crossing-distribution problems are considered: (1) the quota problem, (2) the membership problem, and (3) the combination problem, which is a combination of the quota and membership problems. Our(More)
~ introduction Introduction BEAR-FP is a macrocell-based layout system which builds on its predecessor, thle BEAR system [l]. It uses BEAR's dynamic and efficient data representation, which unifies tohological and geometrical information, and BEAR's routing system. BEAR-FP, however, has a new bloorplanning procedure with integrated global routing and(More)
