AALT (Accelerated Analog Layout Tool)

More efficient analog layout generation for chips)

AALT (Accelerated Analog Layout Tool) aims to increase the productivity of analog integrated circuit layout by keeping the human in the loop but automating the time consuming, monotonous activities. The tool will generate matched structures in guard rings and wells with DRC aware optimisation of sub-circuit block placement and simple auto-routing. The goal is to improve analog layout speed by 50% by letting the computer do the boring work and leave the human to do the thinking. It will support existing open-source projects KLayout and PDKMaster.
