We proposed to use the conjugate gradient method to effectively solve the thermal resistance model in HotSpot thermal floorplan tool. The iterative conjugate gradient solver is suitable for traditional sparse matrix linear systems. We also defined the relative sparse matrix in the iterative thermal floorplan of Simulated Annealing framework algorithm, and the iterative method of relative sparse matrix could be applied to other iterative framework algorithms. The experimental results show that
