ECO-System: Embracing the Change in Placement
IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems
In a realistic design flow, circuit and system optimizations must interact with physical aspects of the design. For example, improvements in timing and power may require replacing large modules with variants that have different power/delay trade-off, shape and connectivity. New logic may be added late in the design flow, subject to interconnect optimization. To support such flexibility in design flows we develop a robust system for performing Engineering Change Orders (ECOs). In contrast withdoi:10.1109/tcad.2007.907271 fatcat:kjyxwow53je6llnfki7gcegope
