As the cost of a complete mask set has dramatically increased and now represents a significant part of the overall project cost, it is critical for design teams, mask data preparation teams, and mask shops to implement a robust and repeatable Mask Data Preparation flow, which increases the productivity of mask set creation and removes any risk of error.

XYALIS offers a suite of tightly integrated state-of-the-art Mask Data Preparation modules that automate the repetitive and time consuming tasks between design and fracturing:

  • Generation of Multi Project Wafers (MPWs) or shuttles with GOTmuch, an automated placement tool dedicated to maximizing silicon usage and minimizing saw lines when assembling heterogeneous chips,
  • Generation of complex reticules with GOTframe, an automated tool for inserting manufacturing items between chips and inside scribe lines, according to reusable process rules,
  • Intuitive mask set creation with GOTmask, supporting Multi-Layer Reticles (MLRs), optimized 1X flow, and wafer map optimization.

 

Built around a powerful dedicated graphical editor and a shared data format, XYALIS Mask Data Preparation solution handles standard layout and job deck formats: GDSII, OASIS, MEBES. Each module can be run through the common graphical user interface or on the command line for automatic processing and easy inclusion in an existing flow.
