We introduce a programming notation in which every syntactically correct program specifies a restoring logic component, i.e., a component whose outputs are permanently connected, via "not too many" transistors, to the power supply. It is shown how the specified components can be translated into transistor diagrams for CMOS integrated circuits. As these components are designed as strict hierarchies, it is hoped that the translation of the transistor diagrams into layouts for integrated circuits can be accomplished mechanically.
