In this paper, the concept of hierarchical multi-objective optimization is applied to analog integrated circuit placement automation, where current-flow and current-density considerations are taken to improve the reliability and, reduce post-layout routing-induced parasitics of the circuit. The current-flow constraints are satisfied by forcing a monotonic… CONTINUE READING
