Abstract

In this paper, PMOTA, a parallel event-driven relaxation-based algorithm for the timing simulation of MOS circuits, is proposed. Two new schemes, static data distribution and dynamic event assignment, are derived to reduce the communication overhead and achieve high speedup ratio, high processor utilization, and balanced load among processor elements. Implementation results show that parallel simulations on distributed memory multiprocessor are feasible for large scale circuit simulation.
