Layout regularity will be mandatory for future CMOS technologies to mitigate manufacturability issues. However, existing CAD tools do not meet the needs imposed by regularity constraints. In this paper we present a new method for regular layout generation with Via-Configurable Transistor Arrays focusing on reducing the area overhead associated to regularity. Results for ISCAS85 benchmarks in the 45nm technology node are provided showing that comparable areas to the standard cell approach can be obtained.
