GDSII Stream Output
Netex-G can write out a GDSII stream file that is organized by net. (this may require a separate license option.) The GDSII file has the following properties:
Why is this GDSII file useful? Our customers have given us two reasons:
A silicon designer can bring this GDSII file (it includes node labels) into his design environment and run a complete LVS from chip to the bottom of the package. This is a good check against a package that may have a design error (or design intent error) in it.
Even if you are not a chip designer, the GDSII file combined with Artwork's Qckvu3 viewer makes is very easy to view each net -- there are times when this is quite valuable.
