Abstract
When RTL designers define the hierarchy of a system, they exploit their knowledge about the conceptual abstractions devised during the design and the functional interactions between the logical components. This valuable information is often lost during physical synthesis. This paper proposes HiDaP, a novel multi-level algorithm that uses RTL information and analytical methods for the macro placement problem of modern designs dominated by multi-cycle connection pipelines. By taking advantage of t...
