This paper describes a gate-array layout system, LOP-ARP2, as a subsystem of Packaging Automation System (PAS), which is a total design system for digital circuits. A new placement technique is proposed: Hierarchical Force Directed Technique considering Circuit Structure, which has been proved to be efficient to large scale gate-arrays.
