ACE: A congestion estimator for wiring custom chips

View publication

Abstract

Because wiring a chip is so time consuming, it is highly desirable to be able to evaluate a particular placement of macros on a chip in terms of its wirability, or choose among several candidate placements, prior to any actual wiring. A method is presented to do this. The expected wire congestion is derived and the critical areas exposed, thereby enabling improvement of the chip layout. © 1985.
