Therefore, three-dimensional (3-D) IC is imported to extend this limit. 3-D IC is to stack several 2-D ICs and use through silicon via (TSV) as iter-layer connection. In this thesis, a timing-driven 3-D floorplanner is proposed, and a two-stage timing analysis method is applied to estimate circuit delay. In the first stage, a simple yet efficient look-up table method is adopted, while an accurate timing analysis algorithm is used in second stage. The proposed method can provide a reliable floorplanning result for later steps in physical design flow. Comparing with traditional min-wirelength floorplanner, the proposed algorithm can improve timing slack a lot. ii URI: http://140.113.39.130/cdrfb3/record/nctu/#GT070060319http://hdl.handle.net/11536/73282 Appears in Collections: Thesis
