e-mail if you have reasonable questions about LASI, or if you think you found a real
bug. A simple question can be difficult or time consuming to answer.
We do not carry advertising
nor send out
Please ignore any email that is not in response to your questions.
Although we include public domain information
available from MOSIS to assist design projects, we are not part of the MOSIS service. Please do not send them
questions regarding LASI.
is NO manual on how to use LASI. It is all in the Help files and
Help installs with LASI. You do not have to be online. Help files
are kept updated with each new version release.
Students should not expect
us to give them much assistance on their projects. Our purpose is to teach
you to think, not ask questions about things that should be
obvious with a little more thought. Do not expect to design ICs
without solving problems on your own.
We also probably do not
know any more about a specific IC process than you do. After all, if you
are designing an IC to be fabricated you are expected to be licensed to use a process and therefore
have access to technical details.
For questions involved
with software indirectly related to LASI we can give only
limited assistance. We usually do not know much about other CAD systems
or drawing formats and
their conversions. Many CAD systems have
proprietary formats that we do not know or cannot release to the
large number of public domain formats try http://www.wotsit.org
For an excellent source of information on
microlithography try http://www.cnf.cornell.edu/cnf_spietoc.html
For technical help on
commonly used fabrication processes and design techniques from
persons doing similar work, we recommend MOSIS http://www.mosis.com.
