The authors describe a new portable algorithm for parallel circuit extraction. The algorithm is built as part of the ongoing ProperCAD project: a portable object-oriented parallel environment for CAD applications that is built on top of the CHARM system. The algorithm, unlike prior approaches like PACE is asynchronous and is based on a coarse-grained dataflow execution model. Performance of circuit extraction is presented on four parallel machines: an Encore Multimax, a Sequent Symmetry, a NCUBE 2 hypercube, and a network of Sun Sparc workstations. The extractor runs unchanged on all these machines
