Abstract
We address the problem of selecting repeater sizes and
inserting at feasible locations in a placed and routed net­
work to meet delay constraints using minimal repeater
area, taking the advantage of slacks available in the net­
work. Specifically, we transform the problem into an un­
constrained optimization problem and solve it by iterative
local refinement. We show that the optimal repeater loca­
tions and sizes that locally minimize the objective function
in the unconstrained problem can be efficiently computed.
We have implemented our algorithm and tested it on a set
of benchmarks; the experimental results are promising.
