Timing-driven placement (TDP) finds new legal locations for standard cells so as to minimize timing violations while preserving placement quality. Although violations may arise from unmet setup or hold constraints, most TDP approaches ignore the latter. Besides, most techniques focus on reducing the worst negative slack and let the improvements on total(More)
Meshes are widely used for distributing clock in high performance designs. In the past, they were used exclusively for microprocessors, now they are being integrated into the ASIC design flow as well. A mesh has a much smaller skew and jitter, but the high power consumption limits its applicability. In this work, we address the high power consumption of(More)
