A new approach to the creation of process-portable standard cell generators is described. The system efficiently captures designer expertise while automating the details of the cell layout process. The system takes advantage of the extensibility of the underlying symbolic layout system to provide process portability without sacrificing layout density. The system includes novel transistor-bending and mask-processing automation
