The ITRS value accounts not only for a single area-to-area cap/length but for a full-around-the-wire cap/length value, this means Ctot/length = Cup/down + Cleft/right + Cfringe,corners -- and thus states a worst-worst case.
With metal_width = metal_pitch/2 and an appropriate value for metal_height = 15

Normally we leave some space for power ring around the macro. You may need to calculate the required space through applying the Power metal pitch value. The required space should be able to accommodate the 2 power routing tracks.

STI, shallow trench isolation, is more repeatable and finer
than old-school LOCOS. Packing density is the goal. But
it can come at a cost because the trench and refill can
add higher stresses / strains that make devices sensitive
to local geometry.
Density rules are for lithographic field loading, and at
some extremes of sparseness the aligner ma

The standard cell height is normally set up based on number of metal tracks. For example, you could design a 10-track standard cell library, which means that the height is 10 M1 track high. M1 track is minimum M1 width+spacing. For example, if your minimum metal pitch is 120nm (60nm wide metal, with 60nm spacing), the 10 (...)

If you are using the same process (i.e. it is still a M6 process, but you want to use only up to M4), then I suggest that you remove all route and then re-route everything again.
If you are switch to another technology (i.e. a M4 process), than I think you shoul d get the M4 volcano, port the placement to the new process uisng the def int

It is related to Encounter. This helps the place and route tool to place the cells in such a way that you don't get any DRC errors wrt to notch errors, metal to metal distance and metal area etc.. If this is not followed there is a good chance that there will be a lot of DRC errors and you would have to correct them manually.

I read that power straps are routed on top metal layers because the top layers are more conductive because of their greater thickness than bottom layers.
now my question this arrangement done deliberately and if it is... why and what if the bottom layers had more thickness and conductivity?

M1 width is the smallest one since it's going to limit your transistor density and it is used for intra-cell routing. The upper one, in general it is used for global power distribution and is thinker than the others, therefore, you cannot achieve smaller width.
In the middle the minimum width is fixed by your litho system capabilities.

When you design several layers of metal or poly, and you must change the direction, you must use 135 (or 45) degrees. This is better because you must keep soft changes of direction, in order to get a constant impedancie across the line. Applying closest corners (e.g: 90 degrees), the effects of corner difraction get more importance.

You will use polysilicon as a gate material with some metal elements doped to improve the conductivity of the gate electrode. metal atoms including aluminium atoms can easily penetrate into the defeccts in the silicon dioxide material to form the spikes, which causes the shorts beteen the gate and the channel.

silicon ensemble uses rules described in "technology".lef. Simply look all LEFs which you read in. There is described e.g. the metal width, pitch, via rules. The rest has to be done in Silicon ensemble itself. So you need also a verilog netlist and the abstract blocks (LEF) for each primitive element used in your netlist.

This is a problem that occurs during IC fabrication.
If you cut the metal close to the gate, you will not have the big metal connected to it until you go at end of IC processes.
Another large used technique is putting diodes to each node (connected to bulk) to avoid this effect.
I hope it can help.
