Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 8.2 *

distance


Valid distance specifications in magic.

Summary:

Distances are normally interpreted as lambda values. However, this depends on the last use of the snap command; snap internal changes the interpretation of units to the internal grid, while snap user changes the interpretation of units to the user grid. Distances may always be explicitly called out by appending one of the following to the distance value (with no intervening whitespace):
i
internal units
l
lambda units
um
microns
mm
millimeters
cu
centimicrons
In any case where the internal grid is finer than the declared distance measure, fractional distances may be specified; e.g.,
box move e 1.25um
