The Circuit Partitioning Page
Previously, the purpose of this page has been solely to make
widely used partitioning benchmarks available in a (relatively)
simple format. We are now expanding this page to include
partitioning codes, results, and even partitioning solutions
for this format. Any contributions or suggestions should be
sent to Chuck Alpert.
Partitioning Benchmarks in Hypergraph Format
The following are small benchmarks or test cases. They do not represent real
circuits and should be used for testing and debugging
The following benchmarks were obtained from Professor C.K. Cheng
The following netlists were derived using the vp2pr translator
TU Munich) that takes a vpnr file and outputs a proud file.
The proud file was then translated into this netlist format;
for these netlists all pads are treated as cells, so there are no "p"'s
in these files.
The following large benchmarks were obtained from Lars Hagen
(firstname.lastname@example.org); I believe they were directly derived from
either .yal or .vpnr format.
