In this paper, we describe the application of two parallelization strategies to the Quartus II FPGA placer. The first uses a pipelining approach and achieves speedups of 1.3x on two processing cores. The second uses a parallel moves approach and achieves speedups of 2.2x on four cores. Unlike all previous parallel moves algorithms, ours i...More
