⨘ } How tap cells remove latch-up?

n-well and p-well are needed to tie to known potential, typically placement of standard cells is done via TAP-LESS library with uniform height (certain advantages such as reduce std cell size, and so pack more cells in a given area), means those cells in same row can share well-ties (done via TAP cells), which can […]
