A clock mesh network synthesis method is proposed which enables clock gating on the local sub-trees in order to reduce the clock power dissipation. Clock gating is performed with a register clustering strategy that considers both i) the similarity of switching activities between registers in a local area and ii) the timing slack on every local data path in(More)
A clock mesh planning and synthesis method is proposed which significantly reduces the power dissipation on the network while considering the power density and timing slack simultaneously. The proposed method is performed at the postplacement stage and consists of three major steps: 1) feasible moving region construction of each register considering timing(More)
A novel clock mesh network synthesis approach is proposed in this paper which generates an improved mesh size with registers placed incrementally considering the timing slack on the data paths and the non-uniform grid wire placement. The primary objective of the method is to reduce the power dissipation without a global skew degradation, which is achieved(More)
