In this paper, we propose a new optimization cost model for VLSI placement. It distinguishes itself from the traditional wire-length cost model by having direct impact on the quality of the detailed routing phase. We also extend the well-known simulated annealing standard cell placement algorithm by applying our new cost model. Experimental results show that we got 13% layout area reduction compared to traditional wire length model, 11% reduction to commercial tool
