The cell layout shown in the figures allows a master slice Weinburger layout to be utilized in polysilicon logic technology. The advantage of being able to run metal wire over a polysilicon gate allows the polysilicon contact to slide to the left or to the right to be aligned with a first level of metal running vertically. This structure allows powerful wiring algorithms to be used in computerized designs and layouts using polysilicon logic devices.
