Lee et al. [70] recently addressed the problem of simultaneously performing redundant-via insertion and line-end extension in the post-routing stage under via-density consideration. Via-density rules constrain the maximum and minimum numbers of vias in each layout area of a predefined size. A twostage approach was proposed to solve this problem. In the first stage, the approach ignores the maximum via density rule and tries to insert redundant vias and line-end extended vias as many as possible.

MULTILEVEL ROUTING FRAMEWORK Our multilevel routing algorithm is inspired by the work in Chang and Lin [19, 74]. Nevertheless, different from the framework of Chang and Lin [19, 74] that integrates global routing, detailed routing, and resource estimation together at each level, we perform global routing in the coarsening stage, 38 Chapter 3 followed by layer/track assignment in an intermediate stage, and then detailed routing in the uncoarsening stage. At the coarsening stage, a fast congestion-driven pattern routing [64] is used for global routing level by level.

A voltage or a current change on one wire can thus interfere with the signal on the other wire. Crosstalk is an unwanted variation which makes the behavior of a manufactured circuit deviate from the expected response. The deleterious influences of crosstalk can be classified into two categories. One is malfunctioning, which makes the logic values of circuit nodes differ from what we desire; the other is timing change, which is caused by switching behavior. Therefore, in addition to routability and timing performance, an effective nanometer router must have the ability and the authority to enact wire spacing, layer switching, net reordering, and parallel wire reduction to correct crosstalk issues in routing (see Figure 3-1).
