FLUTE: Fast Lookup Table Based Technique for RSMT Construction and Wirelength Estimation
FLUTE is a very fast and accurate technique originally designed for wirelength estimation. It is later extended to also perform rectilinear Steiner minimal tree (RSMT) construction. There is a user-defined parameter to control the tradeoff between accuracy and runtime. FLUTE is optimal and extremely fast for nets up to degree 9. For higher degree nets, it is still very fast and accurate. As it handles low degree nets particularly well, it is most suitable for VLSI applications in which most nets have a degree 30 or less.
