Release Notes: The layer configuration window has been enhanced to show the layer and data type numbers in the loaded map table, as well as unmapped layers. An abstract versus layout comparator has been implemented that allows automatically comparing all macros in a LEF with the corresponding GDSII cell, based on comparison of obstruction and port geometries. SoC GDS is now also available under Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 in 64-bit mode.
Release Notes: This release provides extended management of technology files through design kits and Cadence techfile compatibility; LEF reading, validation and display; and hierarchical LEF/GDSII comparison as well as DRC annotation display.
Release Notes: This release features the annotation of netlist names on the layout in order to extend and simplify the viewing by designers of hierarchical nets, thereby allowing users to click on one polygon and display all the equipotent polygons for direct exploration of an annotated GDSII. It also implements handling of datatypes for the XOR and GDSOUT features.
Release Notes: This version implements the display of markers from a GDSII file on another one, for display of DRC or XOR differences directly on the layout, as well as the ability to browse through displayed markers, for instance in order to scan through all the displayed DRC errors or XOR differences.
Release Notes: This release implements hierarchical selection and highlighting of networks by name throughout the hierarchy, LVS Socket generation in batch mode, and a dimmed display mode to allow highlighting of nets, instances, etc. by dimming the surrounding objects while maintaining the object colors instead of using a specific color for highlighting purposes.
Release Notes: This release optimizes the drawing when zooms are performed inside large arrays of cells.
Release Notes: The layout display window is updated progressively during the drawing which can be interrupted by the user, for instance, to zoom in without waiting for the display to be completely updated. Several UI improvements to different dialogs make selection and unselection of layers simpler.
Release Notes: Improvements to the loading speed of highly hierarchical GDSII files.
Release Notes: This release introduces documentation-related functionalities such as copying to any document using the clipboard, printing and saving to an image format (JPEG, PNG, TIF, and XPM), as well as conversion from GDSII to VCLEF and flattening of hierarchical GDSII files.
Release Notes: Hierarchy exploration using the tree window and interactive modification of layer display priorities were added, as was a Unix installation script.
