Multi-project Wafers (MPW) are an efficient way to share the rising costs of mask tooling between multiple prototype and low production volume designs. Packing the different die images on a multi-project reticle leads to new and highly challenging floorplanning formulations, characterized by unusual constraints and complex objective functions. In this paper we study multi-project reticle floorplanning and wafer dicing problems under the prevalent side-to-side wafer dicing technology. Our… CONTINUE READING
