Multicriteria optimisation problems occur naturally in engineering practices. Pareto analysis has proven to be a powerful tool to characterise potentially interesting realisations of a particular engineering problem for design-space exploration. Depending on the optimisation goals, one of the Pareto-optimal alternatives is the optimal realisation. It occurs(More)
We present an on-chip, fully-digital, power-supply control system. The scheme consists of two independent control loops that regulate power supply variations due to semiconductor process spread, temperature, and chip's workload. Smart power-switches working as linear voltage regulators are used to adjust the local power supply. The smart power-switch allows(More)

The paper is a concise survey as well as an exposition of ideas about automation of layout design. Central is a discussion of imperatives of a layout design system suitable for VLSI. Of course, such a system has to take account of the embedding into an integrated design system. However, layout design faces two major problems. One results from industry's(More)
