Abstract--This paper describes a computational approach to
designing a digital microfluidic system (DMFS) that can be rapidly
reconfigured for new biochemical analyses. Such a "lab-on-a-chip"
system for biochemical analysis, based on electrowetting or dielec-
trophoresis, must coordinate the motions of discrete droplets or
biological cells using a planar array of electrodes. The authors
have earlier introduced a layout-based system and demonstrated
its flexibility through simulation, including the system's ability
to perform multiple assays simultaneously. Since array-layout
design and droplet-routing strategies are closely related in such
a DMFS, their goal is to provide designers with algorithms that
enable rapid simulation and control of these DMFS devices. In
this paper, the effects of variations in the basic array-layout
design, droplet-routing control algorithms, and droplet spacing
on system performance are characterized. DMFS arrays with
hardware limited row-column addressing are considered, and a
