Description

Part of GateMaster, PIM was a placement improvement system. It could start with any placement of components on the gate array (including a fast, stupid algorithm implemented here to seed the process), and do swaps of components to improve one of several possible metrics of routability. Later versions also included a simulated annealing algorithm that ran as a slave on a hardware accelerator of Daisy's design (the MegaLogician).
