Places a bundle of routes to connect two groups of ports.

Routes connect a bundle of ports with a river router. Chooses the correct routing function depending on port angles.

Parameters:
  • component – component to add the routes to.

  • ports1 – list of starting ports.

  • ports2 – list of end ports.

  • separation – bundle separation (center to center). Defaults to cross_section.width + cross_section.gap

  • bend – function for the bend. Defaults to euler.

  • sort_ports – sort port coordinates.

  • cross_section – CrossSection or function that returns a cross_section.

  • start_straight_length – straight length at the beginning of the route. If None, uses default value for the routing CrossSection.

  • end_straight_length – end length at the beginning of the route. If None, uses default value for the routing CrossSection.

  • min_straight_taper – minimum length for tapering the straight sections.

  • taper – function for the taper. Defaults to None.

  • port_type – type of port to place. Defaults to optical.

  • collision_check_layers – list of layers to check for collisions.

  • on_collision – action to take on collision. Defaults to show_error.

  • bboxes – list of bounding boxes to avoid collisions.

  • allow_width_mismatch – allow different port widths.

  • radius – bend radius. If None, defaults to cross_section.radius.

  • route_width – width of the route. If None, defaults to cross_section.width.

  • straight – function for the straight. Defaults to straight.
