New Algorithms for the Placement and Routing of Macro Cells

  title={New Algorithms for the Placement and Routing of Macro Cells},
  author={William Swartz and Carl Sechen},
This paper describes new algorithms for timing driven placement and routing of rectilinearly, shaped macm cells. We present new algorithms for the implementaQon of simulated annealin based on a theoretically derived statistical annealing schedule. We &scribe a negative feedback scheme that o timizes the relative weighting between the primary objective term anfthe penalty function terms in the cost function. A new lacement refinement method has been developed for rectilinear cells wgch spaces… CONTINUE READING
