A method is disclosed for defining a dynamic array section to be manufactured on a semiconductor chip. The method includes defining a peripheral boundary of the dynamic array section. The method also includes defining a manufacturing assurance halo outside the boundary of the dynamic array section. The method further includes controlling chip layout features within the manufacturing assurance halo to ensure that manufacturing of conductive features inside the boundary of the dynamic array section is not adversely affected by chip layout features within the manufacturing assurance halo.
