In this paper, a new fuzzy-clustering-based approach is proposed for two-way circuit partitioning. First, a circuit netlist i s represented as an undirected edgeweighted graph by a tree net model. Furthermore, the fuzzy memberships and the clustering distance are introduced into the graph. Based on fuzzy e-means clustering, two groups of the fuzzy memberships will be assigned onto all of the vertices in the graph. Finally, according to these fuzzy memberships and the area information of the… CONTINUE READING
