    • A fast neural-network algorithm for VLSI cell placement 

      Aykanat, Cevdet; Bultan, T.; Haritaoğlu, İ. (Pergamon Press, 1998)
      Cell placement is an important phase of current VLSI circuit design styles such as standard cell, gate array, and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Although nondeterministic algorithms such as Simulated Annealing (SA) ...
    • Two novel multiway circuit partitioning algorithms using relaxed locking 

      Dasdan, A.; Aykanat, Cevdet (IEEE, 1997)
      All the previous Kernighan-Lin-based (KL-based) circuit partitioning algorithms employ the locking mechanism, which enforces each cell to move exactly once per pass. In this paper, we propose two novel approaches for ...
