What we have

     CODA-Place, a next-generation placement tool, has been developed to achieve routability and improve timing.  Its core engine includes:

     A break-through approach to improve the local minimum problem

       introduced by smoothing formulation for wire length to achieve

       differentiablity in concurrent analytic placers;

     A global placer embeds a pioneering optimization scheme in

       handling overlapping and blockage;

     A detailed placer uses a systematic approach to further reduce

       congestion and timing violations;

     A systematic and integrated Macro/Standard-Cell placer.

A typical example that

CODA-Place significantly reduces congestion for routability:
