This paper describes a unique approach to scheduling and allocation problem in high-level synthesis using genetic algorithm (GA). This approach is different from a previous attempt using GA [l] in many respects. Our contributions include: a new chromo-somal representation for scheduling and two subprob-lems of allocation; and two novel crossover operators(More)
In this paper we present a timing-influenced floorplanner for general cell IC design. The floorplanner works in two phases. In the first phase we restrict the modules to be rigid and the floorplan to be slicing. The second phase of floor-planner allows modification to the aspect ratios of individual modules to further reduce the area of the overall bounding(More)
