Library containing command lines and tools to compute placement hints

Project description



This project contains tools to compute placement hints. Placement hints are used by the placement algorithm to place 3D cells in the context of circuit building.

After installation, you can display the available command lines with the following bash command:

atlas-placement-hints --help


This python project depends on Ultraliser for the algorithms which follow a mesh-based approach.

Once Ultraliser is installed, run the following bash commands:

git clone
cd atlas-placement-hints
pip install -e .

Instructions for developers

Run the following commands before submitting your code for review:

cd atlas-placement-hints
isort -l 100 --profile black atlas_placement_hints tests
black -l 100 atlas_placement_hints tests

These formatting operations will help you pass the linting check testenv:lint defined in tox.ini.
