Description

PLACE (auto/interactive placement) was a system for constructive initial placement of components on a gate array, a type of ASIC with fixed locations for components. It used an iterative force relaxation technique, with "forces" binding components that were connected via sets, and other "forces" to spread the components out over the chip's area.
