Physical synthesis is a relatively young field in Electronic Design Automation. Many published optimizations for physical synthesis end up hurting the quality of the final design, often because they neglect important physical aspects of the layout, such as long wires or routing congestion. Our work defines and explores the concept of physical safeness and evaluates empirically its impact on route length, via count and timing. In addition, we propose a new physically safe and logically sounddoi:10.1016/j.vlsi.2008.01.004 fatcat:nmi2ofxhdbhgdciefju2hgp7pu
