ASM 3500 DXF to GDSII Bidirectional Translator


ASM 3500W is a powerful DXF to GDSII Bidirectional Translator. Virtually all mechanical CAD programs can read and write AutoCAD's DXF file format and all IC layout and EDA tools can read and write GDSII.

The translators can be run from a easy-to-use GUI or they can be called from a command line enabling them to be integrated into batch files, scripts and calls from other applications. For OEMs we can also provide these translators as libraries.
