Interconnect issues are becoming increasingly important for ULSI systems. IntSim, an interconnect CAD tool, has been developed to obtain pitches of different wiring levels and die size for circuit blocks or logic cores of microchips. It includes a methodology for co-optimization of signal, power and clock interconnects, and a newly derived stochastic wiring… CONTINUE READING
