Title: A new philosophy for wire routing
Author: Rau, B. Ramakrishna
Date: November 1975
Abstract: A number of interconnection algorithms exist and have been used quite successfully. However, most of them, though differing in detail, appear to subscribe to the same underlying philosophy which has developed from that for single layer boards. Arguments are advanced which question the validity of this philosophy in this environment of multilayer board technology. A new philosophy is developed in this report, which, it is hoped, will be more suited for use with multilayer boards. Based on this philosophy, an interconnection algorithm is then developed in a step by step fashion.
