Survey of partitioning techniques in silicon compilation
- Author(s): Wu, Allen C.H.
- et al.
In the silicon compilation design process, partitioning is usually the first problem to be investigated because partitioning algorithms form the backbone of many algorithms including: system synthesis, processor synthesis, floorplanning, and placement. In this survey, several partitioning techniques will be examined. In addition, this paper will review the partitioning algorithms used by synthesis systems at different design levels.
