Tan Y1 - 2012-01-20 PY - 2012 T1 - A Multilevel Approach Applied to Sat-Encoded Problems N2 - This book provides some recent advances in design nanometer VLSI chips. The selected topics try to present some open problems and challenges with important topics ranging from design tools, new post-silicon devices, GPU-based parallel computing, emerging 3D integration, and antenna design. The book consists of two parts, with chapters such as: VLSI design for multi-sensor smart systems on a chip, Three-dimensional integrated circuits design for thousand-core processors, Parallel symbolic analysis of large analog circuits on GPU platforms, Algorithms for CAD tools VLSI design, A multilevel memetic algorithm for large SAT-encoded problems, etc. BT - VLSI Design SP - Ch. 8 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/33436 DO - 10.5772/33436 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-12-07 ER -
