Modern circuit placement, especially analog placement, often needs to consider various constraints, such as symmetry, proximity, preplaced, variant, fixed-boundary, minimum separation, boundary, and fixed-outline constraints, for better electrical effects and higher performance. To handle these diverse constraints, topological floorplan representations are(More)
Logic emulation is a technique that uses dynamically reprogrammable systems for prototyping and design verification. Using an emulator, designers can realize designs through a software configuration process and perform real-time design verification before fabricating the chip into silicon. However, converting designs into an emulator involves the use of(More)
This paper treats the automatic translation of register transfer level (RTL) descriptions of digital systems to VLSI realization. The target technology is the storage logic array or SLA. The approach is aimed at applications where the emphasis is on reducing engineering effort and design turnaround time rather than maximizing chip area utilization. The(More)
