Given a 1-D layout with horizontal wires, cut redistribution technique is used for sliding the line-end cuts in order to merge them vertically or resolve spacing conflicts. A pair of movable cuts could have three possible relations, left-of, right-of, and merge-into. We observe that if the left-right-merge orderings of cuts are fixed, the cut redistribution can be formulated as a network flow... Read more on IEEE Xplore

High-volume manufacturing of integrated circuits is what drives the semiconductor industry and the scaling of CMOS; however, shrinking all feature sizes is not optimal for all product volumes and applications. While scaling transistors provide improvement in performance at power in general, concerted scaling of the back-end-of-line (BEOL) interconnects provides improvement in density but at some...

During recent years, a digital surveillance system has gained more popularity. Object recognition plays a critical role in an intelligent surveillance system. It mainly consists of several vision-based techniques such as segmentation and tracking. However, these techniques are still challenging. In this paper, an intelligent surveillance system has been proposed on the basis of single-chip design... Read more on IEEE Xplore
