Two related silicon compilers developed at MITs Lincoln Laboratory with a common layout language are examined. The simpler one, the Lincoln Boolean Synthesizer LBS, is a Complementary Metal Oxide CMOS technology based program for generating chips out of arbitrary boolean expressions. MacPitts, on the other hand, can implement advanced programming language constructs in N-Channel NMOS technology. A study of their layout language, Lincoln Laboratorys LISP-based Layout Language L5, and its implementation is presented. In addition, there is also a brief discussion of how Macpittss functional repertoire can be changed.
