EVENT TYPE: REGULAR SESSION
SESSION 11B
Efficiency Improvement for Timing, Power Grid and Circuit Analysis
Moderator:
Kerim Kalafala - IBM Corp.
The session explores different approaches to improving timing, power grid design, and circuit analysis. The first paper applies dynamic programming to optimize the power distribution network to meet timing. The second paper shows how timing analysis can be accelerated by utilizing a GPU architecture. The third paper presents a new graph spectral sparsification technique to build a better conditioner for an iterative circuit solver. The last paper presents a novel stack about a design method by incorporating linear or dynamic programming methods.
