Macro placement in System-on-a-Chip
During the floor planning stage of the physical design process, the placements of macros are considered. This crucial step determines the locations and orientations of macro cells within the chip's layout. By carefully arranging the macros, designers aim to achieve desired objectives such as optimizing performance, reducing power consumption, minimizing area utilization, and ensuring efficient connectivity. The floor planning process plays a vital role in shaping the overall physical layout of the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) and sets the foundation for subsequent design stages.
