A Swarm Random Walk Based Method for the Standard Cell Placement Problem

Algorithm 2

sPL pseudocode.
input: , max, StoppingCondition, benchmark files
output: Best Placement
Initialize: : swarm size, max: maximum runs;
begin
  Read benchmark files;
  repeat
    Partition Bins;
    Initialize swarm;
    for count = 0 max − 1 do
       for   = 0   do
          Generate a solution using a method from Section 4.2;
          if  fitness() < fitness() then
            = ;
          end
       end
    end
  until  StoppingCondition = true;
  Remove bin structure to convert best solution bins to rows;
  Use greedy heuristic;
  Output wirelength;
  return  Best Placement
