An efficient and effective divide-and conquer 2.5D floorplanning algorithm is proposed for wirelength optimization. Modules are pre-partitioned into different dies with respect to the statistical wirelength estimation result. Then a floorplan is generated on each die for wirelength optimization. The new partitioning method successfully solves the conflict between wirelength minimization and inter-die via constraints. Experimental results show that our algorithm could provide noticeable improvement in the total wirelength compared to both 2D design and the previous 2.5D floorplanning algorithm.
