Hierarchical Global Wiring for Custom Chip Design

Abstract

We present a global wiring algorithm used in a top-down physical design environment, i.e. macros are laid out only after global wiring is done, and wires are allowed to pass through macros (wiring-through model). The floorplan of the chip is in the form of a slicing structure. The algorithm is based on a hierarchical scheme. The final result is obtained… (More)
