RouteToNorthAtMaxX

ipkiss3.pcell.routing.RouteToNorthAtMaxX(**kwargs)

Routes the input_port to a line pointing North at an X coordinate which is smaller or equal to the x_position specified. This means that the output port will be at, or westward of, the x_position.

Parameters:

input_port : Port object

port to be routed (starting point of the Route)

bend_radius : positive number

radius of the bends used in the route. Default is taken from TECH.WG.BEND_RADIUS

min_straight : nonnegative number

minimum length of a straight section between bends. Default is taken from TECH.WG.MIN_STRAIGHT

start_straight : nonnegative number

minimum length of the first straight section. Default is the same as min_straight

end_straight : nonnegative number

minimum length of the last straight section. Default is the same as min_straight

rounding algorithm : ShapeModifier object

algorithm which produces the bend shape given the coordinates of the waypoints. default is a circular bend

x_position : number

x-coordinate of the output port

Returns:

RouteToAngle or RouteToLine object
