This is version 1.0 of the Sticks Standard. Software has been written to interface this standard to plotters, a graphic Sticks editor, a Stick compactor and several simulators. The Standard appears adequate to describe cells for chip assemblers as well as Stick diagram editing and compaction systems. However, this version of the Sticks Standard cannot efficiently describe large chips because it lacks an array facility. This deficiency will be corrected in the next release of the Sticks Standard: This document consists of four parts: Sticks definition, Sticks Standard design considerations, the specification of the Sticks Standard, and an example of the Standard in use.
