This paper presents an approach to the automatic generation of schematic diagrams from circuit descriptions. The heuristics which make up the system are based on two principles of schematics readability: Functional Identi cation and Traceability. S P AR's generation process is broken into ve distinct phases: partitioning the netlist, placement of components on the page, global routing, local routing, and the addition of I O modules. All phases of the generation process use a two dimensionaldoi:10.1109/43.238032 fatcat:rl47l4wgprhdlneskb3y5ke7oi
