Machine Learning for VLSI CAD: A Case Study in On-Chip Power Grid Design

Abstract "With the improvement of VLSI technology, on-chip power grid design is becoming more challenging than before. In this design phase of VLSI CAD, power grids are generated in order to make power and ground connections to transistors or logic blocks. However, due to the scaling of supply voltage and increase in the number of transistors per unit area of the chip, power grid design has ... » read more
