In recent years, the X-architecture is introduced to obtain better performance for integrated circuit physical design. This paper reformulates the global routing problem in X-architecture under the liquid routing model. Then, a dynamic resource assignment (Dra) method is presented to reduce potential vias. At last, a global router called DraXRouter, is designed, in which we adopt a dynamic-tabulist-based tree construction algorithm and a stochastic optimization strategy to gain high quality routing solution. Tested on ISPD'98 benchmarks, DraXRouter achieves better routing performance compared with two recent global routers.
