Abstract: Asymptotic waveform evaluation (AWE) provides a generalized approach to linear RLC circuit response approximations. The RLC interconnect model may contain floating capacitors, grounded resistors, inductors, and even linear controlled sources. The transient portion of the response is approximated by matching the initial boundary conditions and the first 2q-1 moments of the exact response to a lower-order q-pole model. For the case of an RC tree model, a first-order AWE approximation reduces to the RC tree methods. >

Abstract: This paper describes an algorithm for generating provably passive reduced-order N-port models for RLC interconnect circuits. It is demonstrated that, in addition to macromodel stability, macromodel passivity is needed to guarantee the overall circuit stability once the active and passive driver/load models are connected. The approach proposed here, PRIMA, is a general method for obtaining passive reduced-order macromodels for linear RLC systems. In this paper, PRIMA is demonstrated in terms of a simple implementation which extends the block Arnoldi technique to include guaranteed passivity while providing superior accuracy. While the same passivity extension is not possible for MPVL, comparable accuracy in the frequency domain for all examples is observed.

Abstract: In this paper, we introduce PVL, an algorithm for computing the Pade approximation of Laplace-domain transfer functions of large linear networks via a Lanczos process. The PVL algorithm has significantly superior numerical stability, while retaining the same efficiency as algorithms that compute the Pade approximation directly through moment matching, such as AWE and its derivatives. As a consequence, it produces more accurate and higher-order approximations, and it renders unnecessary many of the heuristics that AWE and its derivatives had to employ. The algorithm also computes an error bound that permits to identify the true poles and zeros of the original network. We present results of numerical experiments with the PVL algorithm for several large examples. >

Abstract: MIS is both an interactive and a batch-oriented multilevel logic synthesis and minimization system. MIS starts from the combinational logic extracted, typically, from a high-level description of a macrocell. It produces a multilevel set of optimized logic equations preserving the input-output behavior. The system includes both fast and slower (but more optimal) versions of algorithms for minimizing the area, and global timing optimization algorithms to meet system-level timing constraints. This paper provides an overview of the system and a description of the algorithms used. Included are some examples illustrating an input language used for specifying logic and don't-cares. Parts on an industrial chip have been re-synthesized using MIS with favorable results as compared to equivalent manual designs.

TL;DR: A general scheduling methodology is presented that can be integrated into specialized or general-purpose high-level synthesis systems and reduces the number of functional units, storage units, and buses required by balancing the concurrency of operations assigned to them.

Abstract: A general scheduling methodology is presented that can be integrated into specialized or general-purpose high-level synthesis systems. An initial version of the force-directed scheduling algorithm at the heart of this methodology was originally presented by the authors in 1987. The latest implementation of the logarithm introduced here reduces the number of functional units, storage units, and buses required by balancing the concurrency of operations assigned to them. The algorithm supports a comprehensive set of constraint types and scheduling modes. These include multicycle and chained operations; mutually exclusive operations; scheduling under fixed global timing constraints with minimization of functional unit costs, minimization of register costs, and minimization of global interconnect requirements; scheduling with local time constraints (on operation pairs); scheduling under fixed hardware resource constraints; functional pipelining; and structural pipeline (use of pipeline functional units). Examples from current literature, one of which was chosen as a benchmark for the 1988 High-Level Synthesis Workshop, are used to illustrate the effectiveness of the approach. >
