A slicing structure representation for the multi-layer floorplan layout problem
Tang, Maolin & Berntsson, L. Johan (2004) A slicing structure representation for the multi-layer floorplan layout problem. In Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer, Coimbra, Portugal, pp. 188-197.
This is a preliminary study in which we use a genetic algorithm to solve the multiple layer floorplanning problem. The original contribution is a three dimensional slicing structure representation which, to the best of our knowledge, is the first 3D floorplan representation in the literature. In this paper we give some background on VLSI design and the floorplanning problem before describing the slicing structure representation
and the genetic algorithm extensions. We present results for benchmark problems and obtain improvements on previously published results for single layer floorplanning.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
