A two layer pad router is developed for the Monterey Silicon Compiler. Features include an improved pad placement routine that extracts information from the internal layout to minimize chip area and wiring lengths, and a track allocation algorithm that minimizes the use of polysilicon during net layout. The router's performance was compared to that of the MacPitt's Silicon Compiler with four distinct circuits. The Monterey pad router layouts were 5% to 25% faster, and 10% to 15% smaller than those produced by MacPitts.
