Floorplanning Guideline

Can anybody suggest me some conceptual guidelines to floorplan.

eg.
•Why macros are preferred to be placed at corners.
• some DOs and Don'ts that is followed in industry.

not much tool-specific guideline. But which can be very useful for tapeing out a real chip.

Re: Floorplanning Guideline

macros r placed at corners, for better routability and if they placed at corners, they will not devide the logic area so that the compleate logic can be placed with less congestion.
