Binary Decision Diagrams and Applications for VLSI CAD by Shin-ichi Minato

By Shin-ichi Minato

Symbolic Boolean manipulation utilizing binary determination diagrams (BDDs) has been effectively utilized to a large choice of projects, quite in very huge scale integration (VLSI) computer-aided layout (CAD). the idea that of selection graphs as an summary illustration of Boolean capabilities dates again to the early paintings by means of Lee and Akers. within the final ten years, BDDs have discovered common use as a concrete information constitution for symbolic Boolean manipulation. With BDDs, services should be built, manipulated, and in comparison via easy and effective graph algorithms. considering the fact that Boolean features can symbolize not only electronic circuit services, but additionally such mathematical domain names as units and relatives, a wide selection of CAD difficulties should be solved utilizing BDDs.
`Binary determination Diagrams and functions for VLSI CAD offers worthy info for either people who are new to BDDs in addition to to very long time aficionados.' -from the Foreword via Randal E. Bryant.
`Over the earlier ten years ... BDDs have attracted the eye of many researchers as a result of their suitability for representing Boolean features. they're now prevalent in lots of functional VLSI CAD structures. ... this publication can function an creation to BDD strategies and ... it provides a number of new rules on BDDs and their purposes. ... many desktop scientists and engineers could be drawn to this ebook on account that Boolean functionality manipulation is a primary method not just in electronic method layout but additionally in exploring quite a few difficulties in machine science.' - from the Preface through Shin-ichi Minato.

They are applied to the practical benchmark circuits and in many cases compute a good order. [FMK9IJ showed another approach that improves the order for the given BOD by repeating the exchange of the variables. It can give results better than the initial BODs, but it is sometimes trapped in a local optimum. In this chapter, we discuss the properties of the variable ordering for BODs and show two heuristic methods we have developed for variable ordering.

Variable shifters are effective especially for the circuits with regular structures, such as arithmetic logics, and we can also see some effectiveness for other circuits. 24 CHAPTER 2 These experimental results show that the combination of the three attributed edges is very effective in many cases, though none of them are themselves effective for all types of circuits. 6 CONCLUSION In this chapter, we presented basic algorithms of Boolean function manipulation using BDDs, and we then described implementation techniques to make BDD manipulators applicable to practical problems.
