NAME

       GENLIB_PHVIA - place a physical via in the current figure at absolute coordinates

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_PHVIA(type, x, y)
       char type;
       long x, y;

PARAMETERS

       type                Type of the contact to be made

       x, y                Absolute coordinates of the via

DESCRIPTION

       PHVIA  adds  a  via  in  the  current layout cell, at the specified coordinates.  The type
       argument may take the following legal values:

       CONT_POLY           links POLY and ALU1

       CONT_DIF_N          links NDIF and ALU1

       CONT_DIF_P          links PDIF and ALU1

       CONT_BODY_N         links NTIE and ALU1

       CONT_BODY_P         links PTIE and ALU1

       CONT_VIA            links ALU1 and ALU2

       CONT_VIA2           links ALU2 and ALU3

       C_X_N               corner for L-shaped (and S-shaped) N transistor

       C_X_P               corner for L-shaped (and S-shaped) P transistor

ERRORS

       "GENLIB_PHVIA impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
              No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it  isn't  possible  to
              place a via inside it.  you must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.
       "illegal addphvia : type is XX  at x, y"
              The type parameter does not have a legal value, but XX.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell");
            .
            /∗ Put a via ∗/
            GENLIB_PHVIA(CONT_VIA, 12L, 10L);
            .
            .
            GENLIB_DEF_AB(0L, 0L, 0L, 0L);
            /∗ Save that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
       }
