Excerpt from Generic: A Programming Language for Vlsi Layout and Layout Manipulation: Technical Report 270, February 1987

We describe a programming language, Generic (Generation of Integrated Circuits) for producing high-quality, general-purpose layout of custom integrated circuits. Unlike other VLSI programming languages, in Generic, existing layouts can be manipulated by the VLSI operators to produce new layouts.

The design of a layout in Generic starts with a circuit description which contains the active components and electrical nets. The circuit description (sometimes called an abstract layout) is then transformed into a realizable layout by the application of VLSI operators. These operators are both design-rule safe and wire connectivity maintaining. Built-in operations include relative placement, primitive compaction, and orientation. A novel mechanism called planes is described, which for the first time enables non-design rule violating topological manipulations.
