Actual layout is typically restricted to rectilinear shapes (“Manhattan geometry”) interconnect design are channel routers and area routers. Channel routers are used for dedicated regions, pre-allocated as interconnect channels, using a well-defined set of parallel tracks, where wire segments are placed. Area routers (also called maze routers) freely route wires in the plane, bypassing obstacles. Typically, routers work net by net, performing metal layer allocation, and placing wire segments. Since each routed net becomes an obstacle for the following nets, the order of nets is of extreme importance.

Ideally, a net is an equipotential surface, such that the output voltage signal produced by the driver block can be sensed directly and immediately by all the receivers. The number of possible connections can be very large for systems with many blocks. System architects cope with this complexity by using hierarchy: the system consists of only a few top-level blocks, and each block is modeled internally by several interconnected sub-blocks.
Hence, internal nets within low-level blocks are called local wires. Nets connecting blocks at the highest levels are typically very long and are called global wires. Global wires often reach several centimeters of length, as the die edge size is typically 1–2 cm. Circuit architectures emphasize the importance of shared global wires as the main public transportation arteries for communications in the system. The shared wires are typically organized as buses composed of multiple parallel lines carrying control signals and data values among multiple functional units.
