Wmin ≤ wi ≤ Wmax .
For our speciﬁc problem, we’ll take Wmin = 0.1 and Wmax = 10.
Each of the wire segments will be modeled by a simple simple RC circuit, with the resistance
inversely proportional to the width of the wire and the capacitance proportional to the width. (A
far better model uses an extra constant term in the capacitance, but this complicates the equations.)
The capacitance and resistance of the ith segment is thus
Ci = k 0 w i , Ri = ρ/wi , where k0 and ρ are positive constants, which we take to be one for simplicity. We also have
Cload1 = 1.5, Cload2 = 1, and Cload3 = 5.
Using the RC model for the wire segments yields the circuit shown below. 86 R2 R3
C3 + Cload1 C2 R1 R5
C5 + Cload2 R6
C4 C6 + Cload3 We will use the Elmore delay to model the delay from the source to each of the loads. The Elmore
delay to loads 1, 2, and 3 are given by
T1 = (C3 + Cload1 )(R1 + R2 + R3 ) + C2 (R1 + R2 ) +
+(C1 + C4 + C5 + C6 + Cload2 + Cload3 )R1
T2 = (C5 + Cload2 )(R1 + R4 + R5 ) + C4 (R1 + R4 ) +
+(C6 + Cload3 )(R1...
