To achieve minimum signal propagation delay, the non-uniform wire width routing architecture has been widely used in modern VLSI design. The non-uniform routing architecture exploits the wire width flexibilities to trade area for performance. However, many additional design rules, which confine the routing flexibilities, are introduced in nanoscale circuit… CONTINUE READING
