I'm using Design Compiler in Topographical Mode and making manual floorplanning for my designs as this is better than using WLMs. The design contains a Register File which I simply floorplanned using these simple commands:
Code:
set_aspect_ratio .5
set_utilization .85
set_port_side [all_inputs] -side T
set_port_side [all_outputs] -side T
These commands generate a floorplan like this:

I know this floorplan is just for getting better WLMs and is not used in actual layout in ICC. but is there any possible way that I can get the floorplan to something like this ?? Both in DC's Topographical Mode and later in ICC.

I don't know if it needs a memory compiler but I don't have access to one anyway, I'm asking about a (native) way in DC and ICC.

During placement, you could used the data path placement to have structure placement.
