In nanometer regime, the effects of variations are having an increasing impact on the delay and power characteristics of devices as well as the yield of the circuit. Statistical timing analysis and variation aware optimization schemes are required to improve the performance and yield of fabricated circuits. In this paper, we propose a new timing based incremental placement algorithm using fuzzy mathematical programming (FMP) in which the uncertainty due to process variations is modeled using… CONTINUE READING
