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)
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)
