This book presents the
fundamentals and applications of technologies for placement,
routing, via minimization, tree searching, and layer estimation.
In addition, Steiner's problem with rectilinear distance is
discussed, and a solution which will fundamentally revise the
design philosophy of routing is presented. This book also provides
a placement objective that approximates the total minimum-Steiner-
tree length. This objective can be used to develop new structures
that efficiently and closely function as minimum Steiner trees.
Finally, the book examines placement techniques that address
reliability, vibration, and thermal-mechanical stresses, as well as
methods for multiple attribute placement.
