Delay budgeting is a process of determining upper bounds for net delays to guide timing-driven placement. The existing approaches deal de facto only with combinational circuits. However, incorporating retiming into delay budgeting introduces more freedom to optimize sequential circuits. In this paper, we propose an approach for budgeting sequential circuits. We propose a new algorithm, T-SBGT, which uses an LP formulation to solve the budgeting problem in sequential circuits and guarantees that… CONTINUE READING
