    Output format can be a binary file (*.gds) or ASCII file (*.txt).
  5. Select a layer to output as a GDSII file from the PDBB layers.
  6. Output file name.
    Depending on the output format, *.gds for Binary and *.txt for Text are used. File Name is automatically assigned using the user-specified Layer Name. The name to be output can be edited.
  7. Select Output Options.
    • Export Text: Select whether to output text. If option is selected, text is output.
    • Export Data using SREF (Structure Reference): Repeated Flash Data can be registered as a reference shape and used as a library.
  8. Select options for conversion from ARC to Separated LINE.
    GDSII Data has no structure to describe ARC, so ARC should be divided into small segments and output.
    • Angle: Divide ARC to small line based on angle specified in Divide Value.
    • Length: Divide ARC to small line based on length specified in Divide Value. The figure below shows ARC divided into 10 degrees.
