ESP (Evolution-based Standard cell Placement) is a new program package designed to perform standard cell placement and includes macro-block placement capabilities. It uses the new heuristic method of simulating an evolutionary process in order to minimize the cell interconnection wire length. While achieving results comparable to or better than the popular Simulated Annealing algorithm, ESP performs its task about ten times faster.
