This section describes all the two-way transistors in the circuit. Each transistor appears on a line with the following format:

  trans_# type gate diff1 diff2 x y min_length avg_length width area
where trans_# is the name of the transistor, such as trans_42, type is the transistor type, gate, diff1 and diff2 are the names of the nodes connected to the gate, diffusion terminal 1, and diffusion terminal 2 of the transistor, respectively, x and y are an approximate location of the transistor, min_length is the minimum channel length, avg_length is the average channel length weighed by the width of the channel, width is the width of the channel, and area is the total area of the transistor. See the Transistors section in the Circuit Extraction chapter for exactly how these values are computed.
