Magic Toolkit Manual

Open Circuit Design

This manual describes how to generate a process design kit (PDK), herein referred to as a toolkit, targeting a specific process. The toolkit is responsible for aiding the layout designer by providing methods to generate devices according to parameterized values, so that commonly-used devices do not need to be drawn by hand, but can be drawn automatically, and satisfy design rules.
