The course will cover the techniques and algorithms for physical design of Integrated circuits. Topics include partitioning, floor-planning, placement, and routing of electronic chips. Bulk of new challenges in modern chip design corresponding with proposed techniques to fix them will be discussed in the class. This course make a good view on low level chip design and manufacturing for graduate (and post-graduate) students and may open a wide research aspect for them.
