Abstract: In this paper, we consider a problem of VLSI design occurring in the routing phase. The problem is to determine the optimal size selection for the gates in a combinatorial circuit which uses the problem of finding a shortest path in an oriented acyclic graph for making certain updates between any two successive iterations. For this NP-hard problem, we give an approximation algorithm.

Keywords: VLSI design, combinatorial circuits, NP-hard problems, approximation algorithm, shortest paths
