A Decision Tree Approach for Subcircuit Extraction Problem
The layout versus schematic (LVS) analysis is an essential part of topology design verification, and subcircuit extraction is one of the operations in the LVS testing. We provided an efficient decision tree approach to the subcircuit extraction problem based on the solution to the graph isomorphism problem. We construct the decision tree for the pattern circuit and the main circuit. And then we perform a classification process. To evaluate its performance, we compare it with the neural networks based heuristic dynamic programming algorithm (SubHDP) which is by far one of the fastest algorithms for subcircuit extraction problem.
