UNIST ECE students’ paper accepted at DAC 2017
SoCDL’s paper (authors: Seungwon Kim, SangGi Do and Prof. Seokhyeong Kang) “Fast Predictive Useful Skew Methodology for Timing-Driven Placement Optimization” has been accepted for presentation at 2017 54th ACM/EDAC/IEEE DAC (Design Automation Conference) in Austin, Texas in coming June.
DAC is one of the top class major conference in the field of design automation. In this paper, proposed useful skew methodology finds an optimal clock latency for each flip-flop, and the clock latency is implemented by moving the flip-flops and/or reassigning them to local clock buffers. With the proposed TDP method, we effectively reduce early slack or ICCAD 2015 contest benchmarks and achieve 124% and 78% of total quality score improvement compared to the 2015 contest winner.
