Expand description

Find pin shapes based on a layer containing all polygon shapes and a layer containing text labels. The text labels mark the shapes that belong to a pin. For each text label all this shapes are grouped together.

The naive algorithm used is very inefficient but good enough for standard-cells. Especially if it is used in a pre-computation step which is not time-critical.


  • layout: The layout data structure.
  • cell: The cell of which pins should be found.
  • pin_shape_layer_id: The layer which contains the pin shapes.
  • label_layer_id: The layer which contains the text labels of the pins.
