The prelude helps to import most commonly used modules.

Modules

Experimental

Traits and datastructures for the representation of technology related properties, especially design rules.

Re-export of most traits. This can be useful if only traits should be used but not the rest.

Utility functions for dealing with layouts.

Structs

An arc represents the direct path from one pin to another.

Default implementation for CellInstRef. This is just a wrapper around a netlist and a cell ID.

A reference to a cell. This is just a wrapper around a netlist and a cell ID.

A netlist is the container of circuits.

Transformation described by a mirroring at the x axis, then a rotation around the origin, then a scaling, then a translation. This transformation allows rotations by arbitrary angles.

An edge (line segment) is represented by its starting point and end point.

Wrapper around a netlist which provides an on-the-fly flat view of a certain cell. The presented view is flattened until leaf cells. Internally this works by using component IDs that are actually paths through the hierarchy.

Describe a non-equispaced repetition by storing a list of offsets.

Meta-data of a layer.

Reference to a layer.

Description of a transformation in the euclidean plane by a 2x2 matrix A. Transforming a point p is computed by the matrix product A*p.

Affine transformation represented as a 3x3 matrix like:

A MultiPolygon is a list of polygons. There is no restrictions on the polygons (they can be intersecting, empty, etc.).

A reference to a net. This is just a wrapper around a netlist and a net ID.

Path is essentially a chain of line segments but with a possibly a non-zero width. It can be thought of the shape resulting by a stroke of a thick pen along the line segments.

A reference to a pin instance. This is just a wrapper around a netlist and a pin instance ID.

A reference to a pin. This is just a wrapper around a netlist and a pin ID.

A point is defined by a x and y coordinate in the euclidean plane.

A point string is a finite sequence of points. TODO: Implement Deref for accessing the list of points.

A polygon possibly with holes. The polygon is defined by a hull and a list of holes which are both SimplePolygons.

An rectilinear edge (horizontal or vertical line segment) is represented by its starting point and end point.

Resource counted string, used for names. RcStrings can be efficiently cloned.

A rectangle which is oriented along the x an y axis and represented by its lower left and upper right corner.

Iterator over edges of a rectangle.

Describe a equi-spaced n*m two-dimensional repetition as a lattice. The offsets are computed as (i*a, j*b) for i in 0..n and j in 0..m. a and b the distance vectors between two neighbouring points.

Transformation that consists only of a rotation by a multiple of 90 degrees around the origin (0, 0).

Reference to a shape.

A SimplePolygon is a polygon defined by vertices. It does not contain holes but can be self-intersecting.

A SimpleRPolygon is a rectilinear polygon. It does not contain holes but can be self-intersecting. The vertices are stored in an implicit format (one coordinate of two neighbour vertices is always the same for rectilinear polygons). This reduces memory usage but has the drawback that edges must alternate between horizontal and vertical. Vertices between two edges of the same orientation will be dropped.

Describes a geometric transformation that consists of a optional mirroring along the x-axis followed by a rotation by a multiple of 90 degrees followed by a displacement.

A text is a point associated with a string. This struct does not define how the text should be rendered on screen.

Vector defines a two dimensional vector with x and y components in the Euclidean plane.

Traits

Geometric transformation which preserves parallelism. Adds ‘shear’ to the SimilarityTransform.

Calculate the area of a geometry.

Calculation of the ‘bounding box’, i.e. the smallest rectangle that contains the geometrical object.

Trait for types that can be used as coordinates in the euclidean plane. In practice this are integers, floats and possible rational numbers.

Used for immutable dereferencing operations, like *v.

Geometric transformation which preserves oriented angles and distances (i.e. translation).

Calculate the doubled oriented area of a geometry. Using the doubled area allows to compute the area without using fractions. This is especially helpful when computing in integer coordinates.

Get the endpoints of an edge.

Define the intersection between two edges (i.e. line segments).

Most basic trait for the hierarchical flyweight pattern which is used to efficiently represent chip layouts and netlists.

Trait that provides object-like read access to a cell hierarchy structure and its elements.

Non-modifying utility functions for the cell hierarchy.. Import the this trait to use the utility functions all types that implement the HierarchyBase trait.

Trait for writing a layout to a byte stream.

Transform the geometrical object by transforming each point of it.

Mirror at the x or y axis.

Most basic trait for traversing a netlist. A netlist extends the HierarchyBase and hence is hierarchical. NetlistBase extends the components of the hierarchy with pins and nets. Each cell can have pins. Each cell instance has pin instances that correspond one-to-one to the pins of the template cell. Cells can contain nets. Each pin and each pin instance can be connected to one or zero nets. A net can be connected to an arbitrary number of pins and pin instances.

Geometric transformation which preserves angles and ratios of distances. Adds resizing to the IsometricTransform.

Trait for types that can be used as the text of this label. The most simple solution is to use String. However, in many cases where the same text is used in many labels it might be desirable to use ‘string interning’ for more efficient memory usage. Then an Rc<String> could be used for instance.

Trait for the conversion of a geometric shape to a polygon.

General geometric transformation.

Translate the geometrical object by a vector.

Try the calculation of the ‘bounding box’, i.e. the smallest rectangle that contains the geometrical object. In some cases this is not always possible, so the try might fail. For instance a set of polygons does not have a bounding box if the set is empty.

This trait defines the type-casting of the coordinate types for geometrical objects.

Try to compute the bounding box while consuming the data. This is intended to be used for computing bounding boxes over iterators.

Compute the winding number of a geometrical object around a point. The winding number is used to check if a point is contained in a shape.
