Abstract

In this paper, we consider the delay minimization problem of a wire by simultaneously considering buffer insertion, buffer sizing and wire sizing. We consider three versions of the problem, namely using no buffer, using a given number of buffers, and using optimal number of buffers. We provide elegant closed form optimal solutions for all these versions.
