Placement driven synthesis case studies on two sets of two chips: hierarchical and flat

2004 Proceedings of the 2004 international symposium on Physical design - ISPD '04  
In this paper I describe two sets of two large ASIC chips that have recently been processed from netlist to final design by the Semi-Custom Design Team part of IBM's World-Wide Design Center. I address issues such as why the parts were selected for special handling, the issues with the designs that required custom engineering, and the special techniques used in placement driven synthesis that enabled successful completion of the designs
