Genetic Algorithm Based Approach To Circuit Partitioning

Sandeep Singh Gill, Rajeevan Chandel, and Ashwani Chandel

Abstract—In this paper multiway circuit partitioning of circuits using Genetic Algorithms has been attempted. Due to the random search, inherent parallelism, and robustness of genetic algorithms, the solution of a circuit partitioning problem is global optimum. Results obtained show the versatility of the proposed method in solving NP hard problems like circuit partitioning. Results obtained show an improvement over the results of UCLA Branch and Bound partitioner [27]. Information of the circuit has been given in accordance with circuit netlist files used in ISPD’98 circuit benchmark suite.

Index Terms—Partitioning, Genetic algorithm, NP Hard, Net list, Crossover, mutation.
