A novel processing platform for post tape out flows
As the computational requirements for post tape out (PTO) flows increase, computational tools need to scale as well. Using design hierarchy helps, but as the data is processed through the PTO flow, its hierarchy is reduced to achieve higher accuracy. Our solution is a quasi-hierarchical solution that combines multiple levels of parallelism to increase the scalability of the entire PTO flow. In this paper, we describe the system and present experimental results of runtime reduction.
