Problem formulation

• Input

• A constraint circuit A’

• Output

• A optimized constraint circuit B’

• Objective

• Size of B’ << size of A’

• B’ ==img A’

• Remove tree structure

• Use the rewiring technique to construct tree structure

• Characteristic BDD

• Circuit partition

Tree structure

No multiple fanouts

Replace the tree structure by a primary input

Characteristic BDD

• Use characteristic BDD and smoothing technique to verify image equivalence

1: legal output

0: illegal output

• Assign constant value to PI to reduce circuit (cofactor)

• Check

• If Fxi=0 ==img org circuit, then we set constant 0 to PI xi, and optimize circuit.

• If Fxi=1 ==img org circuit, then we set constant 1 to PI xi, and optimize circuit.

horizontal partition

mixed partition

Circuit partition

• For each circuit, we can do vertical partition or horizontal partition into some subcircuit

• Remove tree structure

• Use the rewiring technique to construct tree structure

• Characteristic BDD

• Iteratively remove PIs

• Circuit partition

• Algorithm for image redundant wires identification

• Iteratively remove PIs

optimize

optimize

• Img of F = Img of Fxi=0∪ Img of Fxi=1

• If Img of Fxi=0≤ Img of Fxi=1, then we set xi=1 and optimize the circuit

• If Img of Fxi=1≤ Img of Fxi=0, then we set xi=0 and optimize the circuit

• Img of Fxi=0 =

Img of Fxi=0, X-xi=A∪ Img of Fxi=0, X-xi=B

• Img of Fxi=1 =

Img of Fxi=1, X-xi=A∪ Img of Fxi=1, X-xi=B

• Img of Fxi=0, X-xi=B= Img of Fxi=1, X-xi=B?

A is the set of X-xi such that the effect xi can be propagated to POs

B is the set of X-xi such that the effect xi cannot be propagated to POs

• Propose an algorithm for image redundant PIs identification

• Analyze Img of Fxi=0and Img of Fxi=1
