### Abstract

A floorplan design algorithm is presented which is based on the following: (1) a new representation of order-5 hierarchical floorplan by normalized 2-5 Polish expressions; (2) a novel neighborhood structure defined by a set of four moves that bring a solution to its neighboring solutions; (3) an efficient floorplan area optimization algorithm for general hierarchical floorplans that makes the cost function evaluations possible; and (4) the search technique of simulated annealing. The algorithm generates nonslicing floorplans. It is a natural but nontrivial extension of the algorithm of D. F. Wong and C. L. Liu (Proc. 23rd ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conf., pp. 101-107, 1986). The present algorithm is compared with Wong and Liu's, and improvement was obtained in the test samples.
