A fast algorithm for the design of floorplans is described. The algorithm can be used to carry out the complete design of a floorplan or to improve an existing floorplan. It is based on an enhanced bottom-up iterative improvement technique and can obtain good solutions with an increase in speed of approximately two orders of magnitude over an algorithm using the method of simulated annealing.
