Abstract

A major part of the design of any integrated circuit chip is the wire-routing operation. Basically, once a circuit has been partitioned into chips, and components placed within each chip, wiring involves the assignment of metallization tracks in order to interconnect the components. The wiring program is supplied with a net list which gives sets of points on the chip required to be interconnected.
