Classical oorplanning formulations may lead researchers to solve the wrong problems. This paper points out several examples, including (i) the preoccupation with packing-driven, as opposed to connectivity-driven, problem formulations and benchmarking standards; (ii) the preoccupation with rectangular (and L or T shaped) block shapes; and (iii) the lack of attention to algorithm scalability, xed-die layout requirements, and the overall RTL-down methodology context. The right problem formulations… CONTINUE READING
