MADMACS: An environment for the layout of regular arrays


This paper presents a tool for the automatic layout assembly of regular arrays which consist of cells interconnected with nearest neighbors. As there is a wide range of regular arrays, a single generator is not feasible. The Madmacs system is a development environment for designer specific generators of such structures. These generators are developed using the Lisp language. The use of a programming language allows great flexibility in the description of a generator for a specific kind of structure. A graphic editor is tightly coupled with the Lisp interpreter giving a high degree of interactivity. With its macro command mechanism, one can interactively develop new functions for repetitive tasks such as routing and use them in generators. Moreover, technology independent generators can be developed by using Madmacs object size independent functions.
