BOULDER, Colo. -- The award-winning best paper presentations from the 43rd Design Automation Conference (DAC) are now available in on-demand audio recordings synchronized with slide presentations on the DAC Web site at www.dac.com.

Each year, DAC invites original technical papers describing recent and novel research or engineering developments in the area of electronic design automation (EDA). Selected papers are presented by their authors at DAC technical sessions. The 43rd DAC best paper award winners were selected from 864 regular paper submissions. The award-winning papers are:

Front-End Design Winner

"SAT Sweeping with Local Observability Don't-Cares"

By Qi Zhu, University of California, Berkeley, Calif.; Nathan B. Kitchen, University of California, Berkeley, Calif.; Andreas Kuehlmann, Cadence Berkeley Labs, Berkeley, Calif.; Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, University of California, Berkeley, Calif.

This paper presents the use of SAT for redundancy removal using output "don't-cares" for simplifying circuit descriptions for Boolean reasoning.

Back-End Design Winner

"Power Grid Physics and Implications for CAD"

By Eli Chiprout, Intel Corporation, and Sanjay Pant, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich.

This paper is a detailed study of power grid design issues covering inductance and decoupling capacitors in large microprocessor design. It describes a detailed full-die dynamic model of an industrial microprocessor design, including package and non-uniform decap distribution.

DAC is currently accepting regular paper submissions for the 44th DAC until the deadline of Monday, November 20, at 5 p.m. MST. The submission deadline for student papers is Wednesday, December 6, at 5 p.m. MST. Details are available at http://www.dac.com/43rd/PDFs/44cfp.pdf.
