Thermal-driven white space redistribution for block-level floorplans

Abstract

Given an LB-compact floorplan, a 3D block-level thermal model is firstly proposed to calculate the temperature of each circuit block in reasonable time. Furthermore, based on the temperature calculation in the proposed 3D block-level thermal model and the final floorplan region, an iterative approach is proposed to reduce the final floorplan temperature by… (More)
