Abstract:The design of power grid becomes even more difficult due to the bottleneck of simulation. We propose algorithms to determine the placement of power pads that minimize not only the worst voltage drop but also the voltage deviation across the power grid. Our algorithm uses simulated annealing to minimize the total cost of voltage drops. The key enabler for efficient optimization is a fast localized node-based iterative method to compute the voltages after each movement of pads. Experimental results show that our algorithm demonstrates good runtime characteristics for power grids with large numbers of pad candidates in multimillion-size circuits.
