11.1 PlanAhead - Should I floorplan with a flat or hierarchical netlist?

Description

When using PlanAhead to floorplan, should I use a flat or a hierarchical top-level netlist?

Solution

For best results, you should use a hierarchical netlist. Floorplanning is best done on hierarchical boundaries. It is very difficult to work with a flat netlist.
