Absfrucf-This paper describes the implementation of the Genetic Algorithm for Standard-cell Placement (GASP). Unlike the other placement algorithms that apply transformations o n the physical layout , the genetic algorithm applies transformations on the chromosomal representation of the physical layout. The algorithm works on a set o f configurations(More)
The genetic algorithm has been applied to the VLSI module placement problem. This algorithm is an iterative, evolutional approach. A placement configuration is represented by a set of primitive features such as location and orientation, and the features are arranged in the form of a two-dimensional bitmap chromosome. The representation is flexible, and can(More)
