Boosting: Min-Cut Placement with Improved Signal Delay
In this work we improve top-down min-cut placers in the context of timing closure. Using the concept of boosting factors, we adjust net weights according to net spans, so as to re...

Path smoothing via discrete optimization
A fundamental problem in timing-driven physical synthesis is the reduction of critical paths in a design. In this work, we propose a powerful new technique that moves (and can als...
