Title (EN) PLACEMENT METHODS FOR STANDARD CELL LIBRARY
(FR) METHODES DE POSITIONNEMENT DE BIBLIOTHEQUES DE CELLULES NORMALISEES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods are disclosed for the layout (20) and manufacture of microelectronic circuits. The methods employ the monitoring of the placement of macros (22) within circuit layouts for design rule compliance. Upon detection of noncompliance, the macros associated with noncompliance are adapted to bring the layout within the design rules. In a preferred embodiment of the invention monitoring the relative positions of macros includes identifying instances of coinciding macro (x, y) coordinates. Adapting noncompliant macros further includes steps for maintaining minimum (x, y) distances between adjacent macro corners.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des procédés de topologie (20) et de fabrication de circuits microélectroniques consistant à suivre le positionnement des macros (22) lors de la l'élaboration des circuits pour s'assurer de la des règles de compatibilité. En cas de non compatibilité les macro en étant responsables sont adaptées pour amener la typologie en accord avec les règles de conception. Dans une exécution préférée, le suivi de la position relative des macros consiste à identifier les cas de coïncidence des coordonnées (x, y) des macros, et l'adaptation des macros non compatibles, consiste à maintenir des distances minimales (x, y) entre les coins adjacents des macros.
