Electrical Engineering/Circuits and Electron Devices Routing in the Third Dimension From VLSI to MCMs Naveed Sherwani, Siddharth Bhingarde, and Anand Panyam A volume in the IEEE Press Series on Microelectronic Systems Stuart K. Tewksbury, Series Editor The complex computer chips of tomorrow will consist of not just one or two but several layers of metal interconnect. This makes the interconnect within a chip or a multichip module a three-dimensional problem. This book addresses the algorithmic and cell design issues in chip and MCM routing, with an emphasis on techniques for eliminating routing area. Key features include:
- a wealth of algorithms
- over-the-cell (OTC) routing
- multi-layer VLSI/thin film MCM routing
- MCM routing
- how to reduce chip size
- coverage of fabrication-specific issues.
This book will be of interest to CAD engineers, fabrication engineers, layout engineers, or anyone involved in integrated circuit design. It is also appropriate for use as an advanced-level text on the subject.
