A Relatively Placed Macro (RPM) is a list of basic logic elements (BELs) grouped into a set. Examples of logic elements include:

  • FF
  • LUT
  • DSP
  • RAM

RPMs are primarily used to place small groups of logic close together in order to improve resource efficiency and enable faster interconnections.
