Sait, Sadiq M. and Youssef, H. and El-Maleh, Aiman H. and Minhas, Mahmood R. (2001) Iterative Heuristics for Multiobjective VLSI Cell Placement. In: International Joint INNS-IEEE Conference on Neural Networks, Washington D.C, USA.
We employ two iterative heuristics for the optimization of VLSI standard cell placement. These heuristics are based on Genetic Algorithms (GA's) and Tabu Search (TS) respectively. We address a multiobjective version of the problem in which, power dissipation, timing performance, and interconnect wire lenghth are optimized while layout width is taken as a constraint. Fuzzy rules are incorporated in order to design a multi-objective cost function that integrates the cost of three objectives in a single overall cost value. A series of experiments is performed to study the effect of important algorithmic parameters of GA and TS. Both the techniques are applied to ISCAS-85/89 benchmark circuits and experimental results are reported and compared.
