Performance, power, and functionality, yield and manufacturability are rapidly becoming additional critical factors that must be considered at higher levels of abstraction. A possible solution to improve yield and manufacturability is based on the detection of regularity at logic level This paper focuses its attention on regularity extraction, after technology independent logic synthesis, to detect recurring functionalities during logic synthesis and thus constraining the physical design phase to exploit the regular netlist produced. A fast heuristic to the template identification is proposed and analyzed on a standard set of benchmarks both sequential and combinational.
