ComPLx: A Competitive Primal-dual Lagrange Optimization for Global Placement
We develop a projected-subgradient primal-dual Lagrange optimization for global placement, that can be instantiated with a variety of interconnect models. It decomposes the origin...

Statistical design and optimization for adaptive post-silicon tuning of MEMS filters
Large-scale process variations can significantly limit the practical utility of microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS) for RF (radio frequency) applications. In this paper we desc...

Exploiting die-to-die thermal coupling in 3D IC placement
In this paper, we propose two methods used in 3D IC placement that effectively exploit the die-to-die thermal coupling in the stack. First, TSVs are spread on each die to reduce t...

A fast estimation of SRAM failure rate using probability collectives
Importance sampling is a popular approach to estimate rare event failures of SRAM cells. We propose to improve importance sampling by probability collectives. First, we use “Kul...

Keep it straight: teaching placement how to better handle designs with datapaths
As technology scales and frequency increases, a new design style is emerging, referred to as hybrid designs, which contain a mixture of random logic and datapath standard cell com...

Construction of realistic gate sizing benchmarks with known optimal solutions
Gate sizing in VLSI design is a widely-used method for power or area recovery subject to timing constraints. Several previous works have proposed gate sizing heuristics for power ...

Fault-tolerant 3D clock network
Clock tree synthesis is one of the most important and challenging problems in 3D ICs. The clock signals have to be delivered by through-silicon vias (TSVs) to different tiers with...

Rethinking memory redundancy: optimal bit cell repair for maximum-information storage
SRAM design has been a major challenge for nanoscale manufacturing technology. We propose a new bit cell repair scheme for designing maximum-information memory system (MIMS). Unli...

Thermal-aware cell and through-silicon-via co-placement for 3D ICs
Existing thermal-aware 3D placement methods assume that the temperature of 3D ICs can be optimized by properly distributing the power dissipations, and ignoring the heat conductiv...
