A neural network model is proposed for circuit bipartitioning. The massive parallelism of neural nets has been successfully exploited to balance the partitions of circuit and to reduce the external wiring between the partitions. The experimental results obtained by neural nets are found to be comparable with those achieved by the C.M. Fiduccia and R.M. Mattheyses (1982) algorithm. The proposed approach can be implemented in hardware to accelerate time-consuming partitioning procedures
