With the advent of VLSI technology, multiple-layer routing becomes feasible. Two special types of three-layer channel routing, VHV and HVH, are introduced in this paper. The merging algorithm and the left edge algorithm used in two-layer routing can be extended to three layers. Attempts are made to compare the lower bounds of channel width of three types of routing--two-layer, VHV, and HVH. The algorithms were coded in PASCAL and implemented on VAX 11/780 computer. The computational results are satisfactory, since all the results lead to a further reduction in routing area.
