In electronic design, a netlist is a description of the connectivity of an electronic circuit. In its simplest form, a netlist consists of a list of the electronic components in a circuit and a list of the nodes they are connected to. A network is a collection of two or more interconnected components; the structure and representation of netlists can vary but the fundamental purpose of every netlist is to convey connectivity information. Netlists provide nothing more than instances and some attributes of the components involved. If they express much more than this, they are considered to be a hardware description language such as Verilog or VHDL, or one of several languages designed for input to simulators. Netlists can be physical or logical, instance-based or net-based, flat or hierarchical; the latter unfolded. Most netlists either refer to descriptions of the parts or devices used; each time a part is used in a netlist, this is called an "instance". These descriptions will list the connections that are made to that kind of device, some basic properties of that device.

These connection points are called "terminals" or "pins", among several other names. An "instance" could be anything from a MOSFET transistor or a bipolar junction transistor, to a resistor, a capacitor, or an integrated circuit chip. Instances have "terminals". In the case of a vacuum cleaner, these terminals would be the three metal prongs in the plug; each terminal has a name, in continuing the vacuum cleaner example, they might be "Neutral", "Live" and "Ground". Each instance will have a unique name, so that if you have two instances of vacuum cleaners, one might be "vac1" and the other "vac2". Besides their names, they might otherwise be identical. Networks are the "wires". There may or may not be any special attributes associated with the nets in a design, depending on the particular language the netlist is written in, that language's features. Instance based netlists provide a list of the instances used in a design. Along with each instance, either an ordered list of net names is provided, or a list of pairs provided, of an instance port name, along with the net name to which that port is connected.

In this kind of description, the list of nets can be gathered from the connection lists, there is no place to associate particular attributes with the nets themselves. SPICE is an example of instance-based netlists. Net-based netlists describe all the instances and their attributes describe each net, say which port they are connected on each instance; this allows for attributes to be associated with nets. EDIF is the most famous of the net-based netlists. In large designs, it is a common practice to split the design into pieces, each piece becoming a "definition" which can be used as instances in the design. In the vacuum cleaner analogy, one might have a vacuum cleaner definition with its ports, but now this definition would include a full description of the machine's internal components and how they connect, like a wiring diagram does. A definition which includes no instances is called a "primitive". A "folded" hierarchy allows a single definition to be represented several times by instances.

An "unfolded" hierarchy does not allow a definition to be used more than once in the hierarchy. Folded hierarchies can be compact. A small netlist of just a few instances can describe designs with a large number of instances. For example, suppose definition A is a simple primitive, like a memory cell. Suppose definition B contains 32 instances of A; the design now contains 128 instances. Yet, E describes a circuit. In a "flat" design, only primitives are instanced. Hierarchical designs can be recursively "exploded" by creating a new copy of each definition each time it is used. If the design is folded, expanding it like this will result in a much larger netlist database, but preserves the hierarchy dependencies. Given a hierarchical netlist, the list of instance names in a path from the root definition to a primitive instance specifies the single unique path to that primitive; the paths to every primitive, taken together, comprise a large but flat netlist, equivalent to the compact hierarchical version.

Backannotation is data. They are kept separate from the netlist, because several such alternate sets of data could be applied to a single netlist; these data may have been extracted from a physical design, might provide extra information for more accurate simulations. The data are composed of a hierarchical path and a piece of data for that primitive or finding the values of RC delay due to interconnection. Another concept used in netlists is that of inheritance. Suppose a definition of a capacitor has an associated attribute called "Capacitance", corresponding to the physical property of the same name, with a default value of "100 pF"; each instance of this capacitor might have such an attribute, only with a different value of capacitance. And other instances might not associate any capacitance at all. In the case where no capacitance is specified for an instance, the instance will "inherit" the 100 pF value from its definition. A value specified will "override" the value on the definition. If a great number of attributes end up being th

Gillian Rubinstein is an English-born children's author and playwright. Born in Potten End, Hertfordshire, Rubinstein split her childhood between England and Nigeria, moving to Australia in 1973; as well as eight plays, numerous short stories and articles, she has written over 30 books. Her award-winning and hugely popular 1986 debut Space Demons introduced the themes of growing up and fantasy worlds which emerge in her other writings. Books such as At Ardilla and Galax-Arena all received critical acclaim and multiple awards. In 2001, Rubinstein published Across the Nightingale Floor, the first of the best-selling three-book series Tales of the Otori series under the pseudonym Lian Hearn; the series is set in a fictional island nation resembling feudal Japan and is her first work to reach an adult audience. The name'Lian', comes from a childhood nickname and'Hearn' refers to herons which are a prominent theme in the series, it has been suggested that the surname is most borrowed from Lafcadio Hearn.

Hyakki Yagyō

Hyakki Yagyō, variation: Hyakki Yakō, is an idiom in Japanese folklore. Sometimes an orderly procession, other times a riot, it refers to an uncontrolled horde of countless numbers of supernatural creatures known as oni and yōkai; as a terrifying eruption of the supernatural world into our own, it is similar to the concept of pandemonium in English. Over more than one thousand years of history, its role as a popular theme in traditional storytelling and art, a great deal of folklore has developed around the concept, making it difficult if not impossible to isolate any canonical meanings. One legend of recent vintage states that "every year the yōkai Nurarihyon, will lead all of the yōkai through the streets of Japan during summer nights." Anyone who comes across the procession would perish or be spirited away by the yōkai, unless protected by exorcism scrolls handwritten by Onmyōji spell-casters. It is said that only an onmyōji clan head is strong enough to pass Nurarihyon's Hyakki Yagyō unharmed.

According to another account in the Shūgaishō, a medieval Japanese encyclopedia, the only way to be kept safe from the night parade if it were to come by your house is to stay inside on the specific nights associated with the Chinese zodiac or to chant the magic spell: "KA-TA-SHI-HA-YA, E-KA-SE-NI-KU-RI-NI, TA-ME-RU-SA-KE, TE-E-HI, A-SHI-E-HI, WA-RE-SHI-KO-NI-KE-RI". The Hyakki Yagyō has appeared in several tales collected by Japanese folklorists. Uji Shūi Monogatari, in which a monk encounters a group of a hundred yōkai which pass by the Ryūsenji temple. Konjaku Monogatarishū, which tells that during the Jōgan era, the eldest son of minister Fujiwara was on his way to his lover's place when he saw 100 demons walking from the direction of the main street. Since his attire had the sonjoushi written on it, the demons who noticed it ran away. Ōkagami Gōdanshō Kohon Setsuwashū Hōbutsushū The night parade was a popular theme in Japanese visual art. One of the oldest and most famous examples is the 16th-century handscroll Hyakki Yagyō Zu, erroneously attributed to Tosa Mitsunobu, located in the Shinju-an of Daitoku-ji, Kyoto.

For other picture scrolls, the Hyakki Yagyō Emaki, contains the details of each member in the parade from the Muromachi period. Other notable works in this motif include those by Utagawa Yoshiiku. However, Toriyama's work presents yōkai in separate, encyclopedic entries rather than assembled in a parade, while Utagawa's Kokkei Wanisshi-ki employs the theme of 100 demons to comment on contemporary Japanese military actions in China.
