We study the relationship between robustness,predictability and performance of VLSI circuits. It is shown that predictability and performance are conflicting objectives. Performance and robustness are statically conflicting objectives but they are statistically non-conflicting.We propose and develop means for changing a standard timing-driven partitioning-based placement algorithm in order to design more predictable and robust circuits without sacrificing much of performance.
