Floorplanning is crucial in VLSI chip design as it determines the time-to-market and the quality of the product. In this work, Variable-Order Ant System (VOAS) is developed and combined with a floorplan model namely Corner List (CL) to optimize the area and wirelength. CL is used to represent the floorplan layout. Although CL has proven to have the same(More)
A new perturbation method, called Hierarchical-Congregated Ant System (H-CAS) has been proposed to perform the variable-order bottom-up placement for VLSI. H-CAS exploits the concept of ant colonies, where each ant will generate the perturbation based on differences in dimensions of the VLSI modules in hard modules floorplanning and differences in area of(More)
Placement is important in VLSI physical design as it determines the time-to-market and chip’s reliability. In this paper, a new floorplan representation which couples with Ant System, namely Corner Insertion Sequence (CIS) is proposed. Though CIS’s search complexity is smaller than the state-ofthe-art representation Corner Sequence (CS), CIS adopts a preset(More)
From the industrial perspective, floorplanning is a crucial step in the VLSI physical design process as its efficiency determines the quality and the time-to-market of the product. A new perturbation method, called Cull-and-Aggregate Bottom-up Floorplanner (CABF), which consists of culling and aggregating stages, is developed to perform variable-order(More)
