In this paper, we present a new performance tilven macro-cell placement algorithm. Placement of modules is guided by a set of upperand lower-bounds on the net wire lengths. A convex programming algorithm is used to compute a set of upper-bounds on the net wire lengths which will ensure that timing requirements between input and output signals we satisfied. A setof lower-bounds is also computed to control signal skews at intermediate points of the circuit. Artificial nets are introduced between… CONTINUE READING
