Representation and Use of Design Rules within a Technology Adaptable CAD System

Abstract

This paper describes the representation and use of technology related information in a CAD system designed to support technology adaptable applications. This information is described as design rules using a special-purpose language, DRDL, and is stored in a Design Rule Data Base. The main features of DRDL are noted and the mechanisms that can be implemented in application programs which use design rule information are discussed
