A-priori individual interconnect length estimates can be used to make placement efficient and reduce delay and power consumption in a circuit. However, finding lengths of individual interconnects before their terminals have been placed can be a daunting task. In this thesis, the main characteristics that need to be considered while designing an individual a-priori length estimation technique for today’s integrated circuits are discussed. Then, a technique for estimating individual interconnect… CONTINUE READING
