Presents statistical-timing driven partitioning for performance optimization. We show that by using the concept of node criticality we can enhance the Fiduccia-Mattheyses (FM) partitioning algorithm to achieve, on average, around 20% improvements in terms of timing, among partitions with the same cut size. By incorporating mechanisms for timing optimization at the partitioning level, we facilitate wire-planning at high levels of the design process.
