Polygon Template Text Format

For applications where the user is synthesizing or otherwise generating polygon templates where GDSII is not easy to generate, Polysearch can take the template data as a text file.

Syntax

Number_of_Polygons        the number of polygons to follow
Vertices_in_Polygon       the number of vertices in this polygon
X Y                       X and Y coordinates in database units
X Y
X Y
X Y
X Y                       Note that the last vertex coord = first vertex coord
Vertices_in_Polygon       the number of vertices in this polygon
X Y
X Y
X Y
X Y

Sample File

The following template file has 4 rectangular shaped polygons in it. Note that the vertex count for each rectangle is 5 - that is because the GDSII convention is that the last vertex = first vertex coordinate.

4                       4 polygons
5                       this poly has 5 vertices
