- Author(s): Matsumoto, Tadashi
- et al.
This paper describes a two phase virtual grid compactor. In the first phase, symbols are arranged according to layout design rules. In the second phase, groups of symbols are compacted. (Symbols with a common signal form a group.) The compactor has achieved an approximate twenty to forty percent gain in test cases.
