Hardware and Software Rental Packages
Law firms can rent workstations from us that are loaded and configured with software for viewing and plotting GDSII layouts. Rentals are available by the month.
We provide two alternate workstation configurations depending on the size of the data you need to view and plot. For GDSII files in the range of 0.1 to 4 GB we recommend the Standard configuration and for GDSII files in range of 4-20 GB we recommend the Heavy configuration.
Artwork does not rent color printers but can advise a law firm that needs to purchase or rent such equipment.
Most law firms can make color prints up to 8.5 x 11 with existing in house equipment. If a color printer is needed the first parameter to define is the size of the final prints and this greatly affects which printer to choose. For prints larger than 11 x 17 a wide format inkjet plotter is normally used. The models change rapidly but they are typically equivalent to Hewlett Packard's 500 series or Z2X00 series.
