A rapid and systematic method for performing chip layout of VLSI circuits is described. This method utilizes the configuration of a matrix composed of interacting rows and columns to provide transistor placement and interconnections. This structure, which is orderly and regular, gives high device-packing density and allows ease of checking for layout errors. Resulting layouts may be updated to new design rules automatically. This method has been used in the layout of a 20 000-transistor section of a VLSI circuit.
