i am working on a 12 bit SARADC(4bit R 8bit C architecture), and get confused on the 4it R_DAC layout plan

fig1-> simply place R1 to R16 from top to bottom, no center-centroid, clear routing
fig2-> center-centroid layout, but the routing is killing me

R1~R16 are 2x20 um2 poly resistor

fig2 would be less suffered by gradient
but the resistance of each routing wires are different,i guess that might be a problem?

so which layout is better?
or there's a even better solution?

- Figure 2 is the Better layout.
- You need to put dummy resistors on either side of the array for matching the
etching non uniformity.
- If the resistance value is very high, then a small mismatch in the routing
parasitic can be okey. but if the value is less then you need to match the
routing parasitic resistance as well.

Regards,
SK.

common centroid must be consider , so second figure is best choice here.

Fig2 is a better placement but u need to add dummy resistors on all 4 sides.
