The optimal (or suboptimal) placement of electronic components is a crucial part of most design programs. A generally accepted evaluation function for placement programs of mother board wiring is the total wire length needed to realize the interconnections of the equipotential nodes (signal sets) with their minimal spanning trees (MSTs). A method is suggested to calculate the real lengths needed for wiring without the tedious computation of MSTs. The method is illustrated by sample problems.
