The advent of strong multi-level partitioners has made topdown min-cut placers a favored choice for modern placer implementations. We examine terminal propagation, an important step in min-cut placers, because it is responsible for translating partitioning results into global placement wirelength assumptions. In this work, we identify a previously overlooked problem - ambiguous terminal propagation - and propose a solution based on the concept of feedback from automatic control systems… CONTINUE READING
