In this paper we describe the Fixed-points Addition and Relaxation(FAR) based placement technique. Fixed point is a pseudo cellconnected to a movable cell. By introducing fixed points, theplacement can be maintained in a force equilibrium state andfurther transformed into another equilibrium state. By relaxingsome of the previously introduced fixed points, we can partially orcompletely collapse the current placement in order to repositionthe cells, or incrementally perturb the existing good… Expand
