Floorplan design using annealing

R.H.J.M. Otten, L.P.P.P. van Ginneken

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


An application of simulated annealing to floorplan design or macro placement is described. It uses a minimum size configuration space without invalid solutions, a constant object function, an adaptive control schedule, and an indicator for proper convergence. Fast convergence and improved flexibility are the salient features of this approach.
