The paper presents the improvement of out new approach to optimize the process parameter variation, device heat and wire parasitics for analog LSI design by explicitly incorporating various performance estimations into objective functions for placement and routing. To minimize these objective functions, the placement by the simulated annealing method, and maze routing are effectively modified with the perfomance estimation. The improvement results in the excellent performance driven layout for the large size of analog LSIs.
