Abstract

In this paper, we present an effective path-oriented timing driven placement algorithm for macro cells. Our constructive algorithm minimizes the longest path in the circuit such that total wire length of the placc- ment does not exceed a bound provided by the user. The algorithm also allows fixed and movable I/O pin- s. It uses the concept of partial paths to reduce the run time and dynamic path delay estimation to update and approximate path delays. Our approach is superior to Lin(l] in terms of quality of solutions and run times.
