Drawing and Modeling Layers: The Key to Mastering Layout

This talk discusses the concepts of drawing and modeling layers - a understanding of which is critical to success in the AWR layout environment. Drawing layers are used in the schematic layout view; they are the layers that the designer "sees". Modeling layers are used as a way of adding more flexibility to the layout environment. Model layers come into play whenever schematic elements with PCells are used, or artwork cells are generated. Specific topics include:

  • What are modeling and drawing layers and why do we need them?

  • Drawing layers - and the schematic layout view.

  • The model layer mapping file.

  • Control of the layers through the LPF file.

  • Good design practice for successful setup of the layout environment.
