DRAGON2000: Standard-Cell Placement Tool for Large Industry Circuits

  title={DRAGON2000: Standard-Cell Placement Tool for Large Industry Circuits},
  author={Maogang Wang and Xiaojian Yang and Majid Sarrafzadeh},
In this paper, we develop a new standard cell placement tool, Dragon2000, to solve large scale placement problem effectively. A top-down hierarchical approach is used in Dragon2000. State-of-the-art partitioning tools are tightly integrated with wirelength minimization techniques to achieve superior performance. We argue that net-cut minimization is a good and important shortcut to solve the large scale placement problem. Experimental results show that minimizing net-cut is more important than… CONTINUE READING
