Blockage information for each sub-block includes a first cellview equal to the internal routes, a second cellview equal to the terminal routes plus the spanning routes, and a third cellview equal to the total tracks in the sub-block minus the first and second cellviews. The invention is particularly suited for routing a hierarchical integrated circuit design. By examining the complete hierarchy, the invention ensures that enough metal will be remaining at upper level sub-blocks to complete the routing automatically."
