    • A Divide-and-Conquer Approach for Cell Routing using Litho-friendly Layouts 

      Vidal Obiols, Alexandre (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-06-17)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    • Algorithmic techniques for physical design : macro placement and under-the-cell routing 

      Vidal Obiols, Alexandre (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-01-24)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      With the increase of chip component density and new manufacturability constraints imposed by modern technology nodes, the role of algorithms for electronic design automation is key to the successful implementation of ...
    • RTL-aware dataflow-driven macro placement 

      Vidal Obiols, Alexandre; Cortadella, Jordi; Petit Silvestre, Jordi; Galcerán Oms, Marc; Martorell Cid, Ferran (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      When RTL designers define the hierarchy of a system, they exploit their knowledge about the conceptual abstractions devised during the design and the functional interactions between the logical components. This valuable ...
    • SAT-based algorithms for internal cell routing in nanoelectronic circuits 

      Vidal Obiols, Alexandre (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10-15)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      This thesis presents the extension of a routing framework for the internal routing of standard cells. We extend the original Boolean formulation and modify a SAT-solver to take advantage of the new variables. Our aim is ...
    • Under-the-cell routing to improve manufacturability 

      Vidal Obiols, Alexandre; Cortadella, Jordi; Petit Silvestre, Jordi (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The progressive miniaturization of technology and the unequal scalability of the BEOL and FEOL layers aggravate the routing congestion problem and have a negative impact on manufacturability. Standard cells are designed ...
