DescriptionRecent breakthroughs in the fabrication of Silicon Dangling Bonds (SiDBs) acting as quantum dots enabled the demonstration of a sub-30nm² OR gate and wire segments. This motivated the research community to invest manual labor in the design of circuits, which, however, is currently severely limited by scalability issues. In this work, these limitations are overcome by introducing a design automation framework that establishes a flexible topology based on hexagons as well as a corresponding Bestagon gate library for this technology and, additionally, provides automatic methods for physical design. The resulting framework and all design files will be made publicly available.
