Physical-Aware RTL Restructuring For SoC Cost Reduction

In modern SoC design, RTL hierarchy has to be manipulated throughout the entire design flow in order to accommodate different objectives at different stages of the design process. This becomes particularly true as more and more building blocks of the SoC are reused from previous designs. These requirements are driven by the need to: Adapt the RTL design hierarchy to create homogeneous subs... » read more
