An evolutionary computation method is used to place a set of different Microelectronics Center of North Carolina (MCNC) benchmark circuits on traditional symmetrical Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The experimental results are compared to the state-of-the-art results from Versatile Placement and Routing (VPR). The proposed algorithm achieves promising performance, in terms of routing channel density.
