This paper introduces the virtual reality modeling language (VRML) as a way to describe the layout of integrated circuits. Using this language, the circuit can be viewed in three dimensions, adding the depth dimension, not present in the regular layout description languages. A conversion tool that parses 2D circuit layout descriptions and converts it into 3D VRML models is presented. A discussion about other applications of VRML on integrated circuits design and on educational tools is also included.
