v2.19     (7/12/2016)

Update ODB++ Import

Updated ODB2MIC to reflect the latest ODB++ modules.
New Flexlm node locked licensing.


v1.14     (9/13/2012)

Fixed three ODB++ Import issues

Fixed decompressing issue where ODB2MIC fails to import a ODB++ TAR file. This was caused by incorrectly translating an octal value into its decimal value.
Fixed import issue where ODB2MIC fails to import a ODB++ file that has resize factor in its feature files. The bug is caused by incorrectly reading features with resize factor into the database. This release involves scaling rather than true resize (Valor's method).
Added support for zipped (.zip) ODB++ input.


v1.12     (6/20/2012)

Line Draws with Symbol

Added support of line draws using symbols other than round or square.

User Defined Symbols

Fixed a bug in drawing user defined symbols that overlap. This bug was caused by layer optimization, the order of scratch and paint data were incorrectly drawn.


v1.11     (5/10/2012)

Barcode support

Added support to barcode in the ODB++ importer.

Polarity issue

Fixed the polarity issue where the polarity of a negative symbol nested inside another negative symbol is not generated properly.


v1.10     (3/21/2012)

64 bit GDXMICLF module

This release resolves the memory fault issue on conversion of ODB++ file t12040.tgz to MIC. The solution requires that the formatter GDXMICLF be a 64bit application as the memory footprint exceeded 2GB. The 64bit formatter is included in this package and will be used as long as the OS is 64bit.


v1.09     (12/28/2011)

New enhancements

This version has a few improvements.

  • Supports ODB++ input in the root directory.
  • Progress is printed at stdout when running with XML: [showProgress]1[showProgress].
  • Fixed the issue with Xdefaults.
  • Changed the format from 3.5 to 3.6 which caused to round up the 25nm chord error to 30nm.

  • v1.08     (12/8/2011)

    New enhancements

    This version has a few improvements.

  • Added support for .TGZ .TAR .TAR.GZ and .tar.gz ODB++ input.
  • Prints out ODB2MIC version on startup.
  • Supports ODB++ input in the root directory.
  • Specifies which step/layer is being processed in the progress dialog.
  • Limits ODB++ symbol conversion to the minimum necessary.
  • Speed improvement on ODB++ input with complicated surfaces.

  • v1.07     (11/18/2010)

    River data in ODB++
