Layout-Based Structure Gen.

This tutorial demonstrates how to generate full 3D device simulation models from mask files using the GTS layout-based structure generation feature.

In the tutorial, the mask file nmos.gds is used with the generic 90nm technology techX.ipd which are both delivered with GTS Framework 2013.

When creating new mask files and/or technologies definitions, make sure all layer numbers and layer information matches.

This procedure can be easily applied to more complex layouts such as SRAM cells or ring oscillators also included in the software package.

It is assumed that you are already familiar with GTS Framework and the idea of projects and ToolFolders, as explained in the Getting Started tutorial.
