  1. Placement

    Placement is an essential step in electronic design automation - the portion of the physical design flow that assigns exact locations for various circuit components within the chip’s core area. An inferior placement assignment will not only affect the chip's performance but might also make it nonmanufacturable by producing excessive wirelength, which is beyond available routing resources. Consequently, a placer must perform the assignment while optimizing a number of objectives to ensure that a circuit meets its performance demands. Typical placement objectives include ⁕Total wirelength: Minimizing the total wirelength, or the sum of the length of all the wires in the design, is the primary objective of most existing placers. This not only helps minimize chip size, and hence cost, but also minimizes power and delay, which are proportional to the wirelength ⁕Timing: The clock cycle of a chip is determined by the delay of its longest path, usually referred to as the critical path. Given a performance specification, a placer must ensure that no path exists with delay exceeding the maximum specified delay.
