TimberWolf is an integrated set of placement and routing optimization programs. The general combinatorial optimization technique known as simulated annealing is used by each program. Programs for standard cell, macro/custom cell, and gate-array placement, as well as standard cell global routing, have been developed. Experimental results on industrial circuits show that area savings over existing layout programs ranging from 15 to 62% are possible.
