ABSTRACT

In this paper, a novel hybrid algorithm for Very Large Scale Integration cell placement is presented. The algorithm consists of two stages. The first stage uses distributed space explor­ation to produce an acceptable intermediate placement. The second stage uses a parallel fine grain algorithm to locally explore subspace of the intermediate placement. The resulting place­ment quality of this strategy is equivalent to the standard for comparison in academia and industry-TimberWolf. However, our algorithm has an expected speedup improvement of at least two orders of magnitude over TimberWolf.
