Pathfinding and Co-design

  • Farhang YazdaniEmail author


In this chapter, we will learn about die-package-board pathfinding and co-design. We will also learn about basics of device floorplanning and co-design. A number of industry-based examples are provided to demonstrate the integration process. Co-design and pathfinding methodologies presented in this chapter build the foundation of 2.5D/3D heterogeneous integration.
