A semiconductor chip is provided to include one or more distinct but functionally interfaced dynamic array sections. Each dynamic array section follows a dynamic array architecture that requires conductive features to be linearly defined along a virtual grate in each of a plurality of levels of the semiconductor chip. Each virtual grate is perpendicular to another virtual grate that is either a level above or a level below. Each virtual grate is defined by a framework of parallel lines spaced at a constant pitch. Some of the lines in the virtual grate are occupied by multiple conductive features. A substantially uniform gap can be maintained between proximate ends of adjacent conductive features that occupy a common line in the virtual grate. The substantially uniform gap between the proximate ends of adjacent conductive features can be maintained within each line in the virtual grate that is occupied by multiple conductive features.
