[Libre-silicon-devel] PAD Cells

If I recall correctly from bonding ICs in an academic environment,
bonding machines can handle irregular bond pad arrangements.
In that case, the geometrical resolution of the bonding coordinates
(with respect to the fiducial marks on the die) matter, and metric as
well as imperialist length units can be accomodated. The question is
then the minimum size of the bond pads, to account for the bond wire
footprint plus mechanical tolerance.
