AbstractAdvances in Boolean satisfiability solvers have popularized their use in many of today's CAD VLSI challenges. Existing satisfiability solvers operate on a circuit representation that does not capture all of the structural circuit characteristics and properties. This work proposes algorithms that take into account the circuit don't care conditions thus enhancing the performance of these tools. Don't care sets are addressed in this work both statically and dynamically to reduce the search space and guid…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
