Stacked silicon interconnect (SSI) technology devices consist of multiple super logic regions (SLRs), joined by an interposer. The interposer connections are called super long lines (SLLs). There is some delay penalty when crossing from one SLR to another. To minimize the impact of the SLL delay on your design, floorplan the design so that SLR crossings are not part of the critical path. Minimizing SLR crossings through floorplanning by keeping a challenging module within one SLR only can also improve timing and routability of the design targeting SSI technology devices.
