Presentation: Improving Design Regularity by Targeting Custom Standard-Cell Libraries

Christian Pilato and Fabrizio Ferrandi (Politecnico di Milano) are going to give a talk at the “Ottava giornata nazionale di Sintesi Logica” concerning the work done by Politecnico di Milano in the context of Synaptic. The presentation will be held at the Universit√† degli Studi di Milano on Wednesday July 4, 2012.

Abstract: On recent deep sub-micron technologies, process variation can significantly affect the production of digital devices. Besides improving regularity at geometrical level, high-level regularity is becoming very attractive to improve manufacturing and parametric yields. This work presents a design methodology to target custom standard- cell libraries to improve the regularity of the resulting layout. It identifies a set of Boolean functions in the input designs and it aims at identifying the subset of cells that minimizes the area/power overhead.
